new puppy for older havanese help
Really hope someone can help guide me in this area...
I have an 8.5 year old Havanese-girl (Boba). We got Boba when she was just a couple months old. I've been "wanting" another havanese for quite some time. But since I work from home and Boba and I are the best of friends, I never felt the "need" to get another puppy. But the thought keeps popping up all the time.
Just a couple days ago, I was given the opportunity to adopt an 10-month old havanese girl. I will get to meet her this weekend. I've seen photos of her and she's gorgeous! I am SO excited and have already started thinking of names.
However, I am a bit concerned about how Boba will take our new arrival. I keep reading that its not a good idea to have two girl-dogs in the household (even if they are both spayed). Boba loves meeting other dogs but I'm not sure if she'll appreciate one actually in her home sharing her toys and space. Will the 7+ year age difference cause additional concerns?
Any insights will be GREATLY appreciate. Thanks so much for your time!
