Then, we added Cassie and started watching other havs in our home, so mine got very used to new dogs visiting . Whenever I have a new dog visit for the first time, I always try to introduce them in the yard or a neutral place.
i like the idea of them meeting in a neutral place. makes sense. how do i have Theo enter the house for the first time; carry him? walk him in? let him roam around or take him to his designated wee nwee pad? sorry for the barrage of questions.

I had them meet in the yard as well and then we just all came inside after they got a chance to really sniff each other out and be comfortable.
The most surprising thing to me was how easily he adjusted and how hard it has been on Piper. I am making sure to give her extra attention, feed her first, give her treats first, etc. He is used to sleeping in his crate so I've continued that and Piper is sleeping on the bed with me like she always has and I think she appreciates that break from him. I know they will be best friends and already on day 4 I am seeing her warming up to him so be patient!

Yes he's home! He's beautiful! Picked him up on Saturday. Took him to the vet today and he has conjunctivitis but otherwise well. He was treated for Giardia by the foster mom, so they took a fecal sample and wont get the results til Wednesday. The vet put him on a deworming medicine and gave him a distemper shot. He weighs a bit over 3lbs. We believe he's about 10 weeks old. He's had NO potty training at all so ive been working on that for the last two days and he seems to be pretty smart. He also barks for attention so that's different for us since Leyla never barks. And Leyla is feeling him out. I assume that i shouldn't let them be together yet because of the conjunctivitis....not that Leyla is giving him the time of day lol. Of course i second-guessed my decision to add asecond Hav the first night when he was crying, lol,but im in itfor the long haul. I've been ignoring the barking and it seems to be working. I'm ready for a good night's sleep tho lol!

It is so easy to forget the "joys" of puppyhood once we are out of it with our older ones! That is why they make puppies so stinking cute! Otherwise, we wouldn't forget how much work they are . I would ask your vet about letting them together with the conjunctivitis. I would think that after being on medicine for a bit, it would be fine. But, I would ask the vet. I hope you get some sleep soon! Pictures please!!! And Merry Christmas!

So true! so this morning Leyla let him know who the Alpha is lol! it was too cute; Leyla has been allowing him to sniff out her hangout spots but this morning he kept taking a milk bone from her and she finally growled and stood there. you should've seen Theo; he pretty much said "ok ok my bad" and never touched it again. And after a while they played together for the first time!!! Here is a pic of the first time I met him! Oh and by the way, what is the Halo Facebook page name? There are a lot of "Halo"s out there!

So cute!!! Congratulations, I'm so happy for you

We are on week two and they are just starting to work it out so hang in there. Piper is very passive so it's very hard not to step in and help her out when my new guy Riley is stealing toys right out of her mouth.

Merry Christmas! I hope you get some sleep soon

The new puppy is adorable. Glad Leyla is teaching him who's the boss. I'm sure they'll be best buddies after a while. Congratulations.
