Hi, I have a 5 1/2 month old English Bulldog puppy. I also have a 2 year old maltese mix and a 3 year old chihuahua. Is there any hope that they will someday get along?
The puppy wants to play. The chihuahua is the alpha dog, for sure, and puts him in his place. The maltese mix, however, barks constantly and will not get anywhere near the puppy. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Debbie
Hi Debbie Yes it's very likely that, given time, your dogs will get along together and may even become the best of friends.
Introducing a new puppy into a household where there are already resident dog/s is always a bit of a challenge, and there is an adjustment period for everyone involved.
I think you will find my Introducing A New Puppy page helpful as it has lots of tips and advice to make the transition that much smoother.
