We just introduced a puppy to our home, and our 9 year old Hav. Since he is older, he definitely puts the puppy in his place, and will only play with him on his terms. The puppy, Oscar LOVES his big brother... but it's like a human sibling relationship. Buzzy gets annoyed with Oscar, and I can almost see h im rolling his eyes at him. Oscar follows Buzzy EVERYWHERE (which is just on my heels or my husbands heels). Oscar also loves to steal Buzzy's toys, bully sticks, etc. It's very funny- I will give them both bully sticks, the same exact ones, and Oscar just has to have Buzzy's... so he will steal it from Buzzy and Buzzy will walk over and take Oscar's. Repeat. Soemtimes Buzzy gets annoyed and takes them both! They are too funny together and it does take time. They argue like siblings too- barking at each other while playing (or because Buzzy doesn't want to play). OTOH, I have friends that have brought home puppies and they were instantly BFF's. Each case is individual. Let us know how it goes. Congrats and good luck!
