New puppy and Boomer

Hi. I have a 3 year old male havanese, boomer. We just brought home a 9 week old female havanese. Boomer is 20 pounds,, the female, Haper, is 1 pound, 9 oz. He is PETRIFIED of her. He slowly walked up to her, staying about a foot away, and ran away with his tail down, and any time she waddles towards him, he takes off running. He is definitely not playing. In fact, he starts shaking! Now i do understand its a new experience for him, and I just brought her her about a couple hours ago. But he wants nothing to do with her and is scared as scared can be. Any suggestions to fix this, or will time just have to play its part?

He is generally not very confident and forthcoming with strangers (humans) or other dogs, but, he will find a few dogs in the neighborhood and play with them. I think I didn;t socialize him very well. I work from home, and its so easy to just wake up, work, and play with him without really taking him anywhere.

This happened with my previous dogs a few years back. It just takes time and some getting used to. They can be around each other but from a distance, over time your older dog should get used to the new kid lol.

Your older dog may understand this is a tiny fragile puppy giving her a "puppy pass." Be glad the 20lb understands he can't play with this very young nine-week old puppy. I didn't know they separated puppies from their mothers until 12 weeks. My puppy was 3 months and weighted 3.5lbs when we got her. We have a Golden-doodle that is around 70lbs. We let them smell each other and after a few weeks put them together out in the yard, under watchful eyes. The Golden-doodle was gentle and allowed the puppy to jump and bit around on her ... giving her a "puppy pass." They now romp around together but the older dog still understands the size difference plays around with our now 12lb Havanese by using her head to nudge her around.

In Norway it is most common to get the puppies when they are 8 weeks old


Good luck with your two doggies!

Will hopefully get a havanese puppy in April/May EDIT: July?

It might help to keep the new puppy in an expen in the area where Boomer and you hang out. This way Boomer can begin to get use to her without her making contact with him. Over time, days to weeks, he should get more comfortable around her. Don’t rush it.
