Greg & Izzy

Hi All,

I'm new here. I found this site while just browsing around the web like I often do and reading about Basenjis, like I don't know enough already. I've had Izzy for 5 years now. She's quite a handful. She can open the oven, child safety locks, scale a 4' fence, dig under a fence, destroy a bed, destroy a couch, and wear down dogs three times her size. She's also very sweet, when she wants to be, cute as anything and very playful.

Well, anyway, my girlfriend and I just moved into a new apartment together and she has a little alb multipoo (maltese/poodle), and I need some advice on getting the dogs acquainted with each other for living together. Needless to say, the little one has never had anything much in the way of rules and my girlfriend is very nervous that Izzy will see the little one as lunch. I'm not gonna lie, Izzy has given her some rather strange looks. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I know there isn't a lot of detail here, but I can fill in the blanks if anyone offers anything in the way of help. Thanks! I need these dogs to get along.

Welcome Greg. Its always best to get dogs acquainted outside their own territory. It looks as though they have already met. I hope there is no rush to get them together as it can take time. It all depends on the dogs. Take them for plenty of walks together, preferably long ones. I see they are the same sex. Are they neutered? What are their temperaments like? Do they normally get on with other dogs?
