I need to figure out how to get my dog and a friends rescue dog to get along!
A good friend of mine adopted a German Shep. mix from a rescue yesterday and after a few hours we ran into some problems. We brought her dog, Parvati, to her house where my dog was waiting in the bathroom. Cooper(mine) came out and they were getting along fine. Sniffed eachother, didn't growl or anything. We walked about a mile to Petco and while there, Parvati barked a few times at Cooper.
Cooper is a docile boxer/bulldog mix that gets along with just about everyone except while out of walks.
So after this happened we walked home and it was without a problem. While home, Parvati continued to come at Cooper (we think without provocation).
Is there anything that we can do to get them to get along? Our friendship is important to me and the dogs are a big part of our life too. I'd be up for any suggestions anyone may have.
