She's okay she never liked dogs because she's a rescue has a hard 1st year (poor girl) she barks at him to warn him and stuff but she's not attacking him or anything like that and they play fetch together I play with nutty and herbs just runs about because she's a hyper puppy onmy had him like 1 3/4 months and she is getting much better. She just can't stay away when we're out in the garden and comes out wagging I think herbs just needs to stop being so hyper and nutty to stop being grouchy but she still has the comfort of upstairs so when she gets a bit fed up with him but we now walk them both together which helps

have you got any tips for us they would help

There are plenty on this site who've had experience with adding a poo to the team. I'm not one of them but they all seem to get through in the end. I suspect we'd all feel like we were being usurped by a younger, cuter interloper. ;)

Yeah probs it might be like getting a younger brother or sister I guess I dunno I'm an only child so no idea :D I mean we'll never know what she/he is thinking but herbs is harmless unless you're fingers, socks, curtain tying thingies, dressing gowns everything they aren't supposed to have ;)

Awww - they are both lovely :D and I hope they settle down together

I did it the other way round - I was owned by a stoppy resource guarding rescue cockapoo when I got another puppy. The first few weeks were quite stressy as Molly cockapoo was not at all happy either with the pup or me for bringing the pup in, but with lots of reassurance that her life was not changing for the worse they have settled very nicely and whilst they do not cuddle up together they play and generally get on pretty well together.

This is Molly and "her puppy" Chance

Wow that's great did you give molly any treats whilst she was near chance? Molly's a great name because it's mine :p and when she was in the kennels nutty used to be called it she's had several names Molly, Foxy, Marmite, Nutmeg and Nutty


It's amazing how loving rescues can be after what they have been through

Yes lots of rewards when Molly was tolerating Chance close to her. Lots of nice calm bits of training with them both together getting rewards and lifting any items which Molly declared HERS - which at one stage was almost everything!!

Chance is my first ever pup having always had older rescues before - but I think a pup was the best option for Molly to learn to accept sharing - and my friend thought so too and gave me Chance :D

It has helped Molly hugely to learn to share and when we looked after a pup for a few days at Christmas everything was much calmer and she was only mildly grumpy :rolleyes:

My three!
When we first got Inzi we had a JRT and a hooligan rottie cross thing. She was only an only dog for a couple of months before we got Kiki and I didn't anticipate any problems. Howver Inzi was not keen - not aggressive, but very depressed and witrdrawn and whould just move away from Kiki. However she loves her ball so we played with her a lot around the pup and also used food treats. I always train my dogs in bursts throughout the day and mostly together, although I do try and do own time training too - difficult with a collie :p
Kiki was horrified when Dot came home and barked at her - but by the next day was letting her cuddle up to her. Inzi was just resigned.... Dot curled up on her tail the first evening and bounced in her face continually :D
None of these three are rescues, but in the past have had a couple who were and I will do again the future. I really believe that dogs enjoy having other dogs around and most days I walk in the morings with others - not uncommon to have 7 or 8 dogs charging around happily together, including a patterdale cross who has a reputation of being very aggressive to other dogs - Kiki has sucked on his ears since she was a pup and he has never been anything other than the perfect gentleman with my dogs. He is a rescue who had a bad start, but with excellent management by his owner and lots of socialisation he is mostly perfect!
I've put a pic of Fred and Kiki in too - just to show you what a dangerous patterdale he is :D:D:D

Here is Franco with big sister Ginger. Ginger is a Shepard mix that we rescued about ten years ago. We estimate she is around 12 years old. She always had another dog in the house until last spring. We waited a little more than a year to get another sibling. It is a slow adjustment, but she tolerates Franco more and more each day. I took Franco to my parents for the weekend recently, and Ginger stayed home with my daughter. Ginger was actually happy to see Franco when we returned and played with him for a short time.:)
