I bear a tail that helps me run,

I go nowhere when I wear one,

My face can show my many moods,

I hide it if you withhold food,

Pet me right and I’ll repay,

For love and friendship I convey.

What am I?

A bit similar, but different and more precise answer

Are you a

Mobile Phone

I bear a tail that helps me run.

Wire of charger. Mobile phone will run when it has power.

I go nowhere when I wear one.

When you are charging your phone, you cannot move it.

My face can show my many moods.

It's display screen shows different things.

I hide it if you withhold food.

If you do not give it electricity, it will power down and will see an empty screen.

Pet me right and I’ll repay.

If you take care of it properly, you can use it for a long time.

For love and friendship I convey.

Can be a thoughtful gift for your dear one.

    $\begingroup$ Hmm, I have feeling that 'computer' could be regarded the same as 'mobile phone' here, as they both are correct answers @rsp $\endgroup$ – Beastly Gerbil Sep 23 '16 at 6:50

Is it a

Computer (or any electronic device with a display screen)

I bear a tail that helps me run.

The lead that supplies the device with electricity so it can run

I go nowhere when I wear one.

When the device runs it doesn't actually move and it can only move to the lead extension

My face can show my many moods.

The display screen

I hide it if you withhold food.

It won't work if you don't give it electricity, just give a blank screen

Pet me right and I’ll repay.

You have to look after your device. It can break easily.

For love and friendship I convey.

Who doesn't love a computer?
