A friend of ours left island and for reasons beyond her control, is now unexpectedly stuck in Texas for the next couple of months. She left behind a small female dog, who I only met once and couldn't tell you for the life of me what kind of dog she was except that she was brown, white, and friendly as could be. Her roommate is now also leaving and cannot take the dog with her, and the landlord had decided that at the end of the day tomorrow, the dog will be taken to the Humane Society if it isn't out of the house.
She's asked us if we could at least pick the dog up tomorrow before she winds up at the Humane Society and help her find a temporary home. We told her we can hold onto her until the end of May, when I'll be leaving island for the summer and Chris will be caring for Paco (5 months) on his own, but that we would need to find another home before then.
Anywho, I've never introduced a second dog into a house…and now I'm suddenly doing it tomorrow! I figure I'll introduce them in the driveway, let them play a bit, then bring them down to our deck, more play, then in the house. Paco's really good with getting to know other dogs and pups so far, I'm hoping Sophia, the new dog, will follow suit. fingers crossed
Each will have their own crate and food bowls, I'll see how they react at feeding time, as Paco is used to being fed outside his crate. Any must-know information I should have before I dive in? I'm researching as I type this!
