Sadie is a 11 month old Husky/Golden Retriever. She's spoiled rotten and loves her dad (my boyfriend, Shawn) and I. We play with her all the time and she's our little princess. However, yesterday we decided to get a new puppy. Frank is an 8 week old Purebred Blue Tick Hound. Sadie isn't very fond of him and I figured that it would take a few days for her to adjust but Shawn is a little more weary toward the situation. Frank is a nibbler and Sadie growls at him when she disapproves of something he does. I'm not sure how to get them to adjust to each other.We picked Frank up on a farm and let Sadie sniff around him and they rode in the car for awhile together and played in a dog park with other dogs, other than that Frank slept all day yesterday. Sadie is starting to lose her "puppy-ness"... but I don't want her to feel like we don't love her anymore just because she has a little brother now. I know paying attention to Sadie is a given and keeping them separated for awhile is good, but I wanted to know if there was a estimated time of adjustment or any tips that would help them warm up to each other soon! Thanks!View Thread
