Help: New Dog!!!
I got a new dog, a shih-tzu, she's a year old. I have an 3 year old Pek. He's really friendly, like he just wants to play with her, but she nipped at him when he got near her.
What do I do? Right now I have them separated. One is in a room with a baby barrier and the other dog is on the other side of the barrier, each can see the other. I put some of his toys with her and left her only item (a bandana) with him.
How can I make the introduction fast and simple?
She's nice, or seems like she is.
How long do I have to wait to see if they go or don't go together??? She's really cute and all, but he's my number one choice and if she doesn't get along with him, well then, I want to know soon, so that I can return her to her previous owners.
