Q: why is my boy so scared of my boyfriend?
If my boyfriend evens moves his arms just to stretch, he runs away or looks at him like "what are you doing?" There will even be times where i will reach down to pet him and he'll run. But when he notice's its me he runs and jumps on my lap! Please help. I dont know if somethings wrong!

Yep--it sounds like your "boy" does not "trust" the hand, but is relatively comfortable with yours. If you continue to treat him well and try not to give him a reason to distrust your hand, eventually (hopefully) he will overcome his past fear.
You (and your boyfriend) can also do things to facillitate your dog's "recovery". Try offering an occasional treat, pet your dog, and just "be kind". Make sure he sees your hand approaching, and go slowly. Good luck--your patience should be rewarded with a trusting, devoted "boy".
