Trying to introduce new b
  • 0
  • We found an injured female B, took her to the vet, brought her home and she is very aggressive to our boy. He is cowering from her but she is baring her teeth at him and we are keeping her in a crate untl we figure out what to do with her. Will they get along or should we find another home for her before the kids get attached?

  • She may always be nasty, or it may be a newcomer thing. I have always had younger B's coming into my home. I've never introduced an older B into my home or an older dog for that matter. Perhaps some of the others have more experience. I know the domesticated dogs (most of them) would get over it, but I'm not sure about a B.

    I agree…I think it is too soon to tell. She is scared, and hurt, I don't think you can get an accurate assessment at this point. I would keep them separated until she is feeling 100% better, and more comfortable, then go slowly. But let your family know that she may have to go to another home, if the dogs can't work it out.
