Well, I brought home Lexie this afternoon from Alaqua.

She is a sweetie and she and I are well on our way to bonding. She and Shaynn are another issue. Lexie want to be friends and shyann has nipped at her twice. I introduced them outside, but Shy was not happy. Lexie got a good bath and Shyann seems to be perkier than she has been since Sarge passed, if only because she is watching Lexie with hawk eyes. How long if you introduced another to your pack did it take for them to get along? How did you help them to work it out?

Thanks,
AL

Aleo, you've done a good thing. :clap:No doubt Shyan will come around in 2 or 3 days. She's still trying to figure out whether the "new arrival" is just visiting or the new roomie. I predict things will soon be fine.

Lexie is too cute! Congrats on the addition. We just adopted a friend for our Gigi, a border mix this weekend. What we were told was that we had to keep Gigi the dominant one. We are supposed to accomplish this by speaking to gigi first, feeding her first, etc. We did pick a dog w/ a calmer attitude than gigi, she is a corgi/cocker mix about the same age. So far so good. I have seen lots of play, w/ one or the other wanting to stop play fighting but the other not noticing which led to bark or too, but no nipping. Of course, since ours was always alone and not grieving for a lost playmate may mean its a different story. Good luck and congrats.

How did they do it Biff? I just broke up another tussle. No blood or squealing. Just lots of teeth gnashing and grabbing/ nipping at each other neck and ears. Shyann is showing more dominance than I thought she would. No one has yelped yet.

I got sucked in by a doggie space warp:D

I hope so. Shyann is taking a nap on the bed while Lexie is on the floor. I swear it's the most energy that Shyann has shown since Sarge passed.:blink:

Thank you. Beautiful picture:wave:

How cute! So glad you got one from Alaqua!

My suggestion would be to let the dogs have space to work it out - so they aren't competing for your attention and be sure to emphasize that Shayann is in charge and that she gets more attention, food, whatever!
