Hi everyone! It's been a while since I logged on here, hope you all are doing well. Over the weekend, my husband and I rescued a german shepherd mix 8 week old puppy. Does anyone have any tips on the best way to introduce to a current pet Shiba? Champ is 4 years old now. He loves other dogs, but is a bit stand offish right now. I know he will warm up, but any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Tracey
