Introducing new boxer pup to old terrier
After talking to a herd of breeders we found a reputable breeder that we liked with some young females. We are going to check the girls out sunday and she can be taken home the day after thanksgiving.Ill put up some pics.We can hardly wait but we have a few concerns reguarding our existing dog.
I found our mix terrier,sarah, on the road 7 years ago and her and Rockne tolerated each other.Rock was 5yrs old at the time of introduction. Rock loved her but she didnt want anything to do with him and he learned to just let her be. When rock played rough with his toys or me sarah just took off under the bed or to the high gound on the back of the couch.She is fixed and the new pup will be spayed as soon as the vet says its ok.
Im looking for advice on how to introduce these dogs and if having 2 spayed females will cause any trouble.They will not be alone unsupervised.Im hoping sarah will be more accepting of the pup since they will be colse to the same size for a little while.
