Will my dog be traumatized by isolation?

My 11 month old Belgian Malinois / German Shepherd puppy is in a 10 day quarantine for suspicion of rabies. He most certainly does not have rabies, but that's beside the point. I can pick him up on the 10th day. He is boisterous and playful and I'm worried about him being isolated for so long. Will he be traumatized? What can I do to help him?

If he is being isolated at your local animal shelter,, there’s little chance of being traumatized. They are pros and know how to take care of pets being quarantined. I would be more worried about him biting again. Breeds like that need strict training because of what they are bred to be.
