My 2 yr old jack Russell mix doesn't poop every day

by scrappy's mom

i have a 2 yr old jack Russell mix that we adopted from the shelter a little over a week ago. He eats about a cup of dry food a day, always at night, he won't eat in the morning at all, I've tried doing 2 meals. He drinks a lot of water & has no problem peeing when we go out but has only pooped a couple of times in the last week. He doesn't strain or even act like he has to poop. We give him plenty of time & space to go but he just doesn't. He isn't real active. Likes to play then rest a lot. If we are watching tv he will just lay down on our lap & chill. Is this normal? I haven't had a dog before so I wasn't sure how often he should poop.
