Tammy, Kodi's BFF is a GSD who, in general, doesn't like small breed dogs. Buddy has been "snarked at" by too many unsocialized small breed dogs, so he prefers to ignore them. But he and Kodi were introduced when Kodi was a small puppy, and that made all the difference. Buddy sort of "raised" Kodi, and their friendship now that they are both adults is rock solid, despite the size difference. So it's not impossible that Tillie and Alice could become fast friends.
The only sad thing for us now is that Buddy, at 10, is really showing his age. He has a lot of arthritis in his back and one elbow. He wants SO much to really play with Kodi, but if he does, he's in so much pain later that day that his owner has to give him pain meds. So we have to limit them to slow walks or just hanging out in the house together. Even that has to be at her house, because he can't keep his balance on the shiny floors at my house. My friend has had to put runners all over her house for him.
Karen, Kodi, Pixel and Panda
