Even when him and the beagle play she'll be going at his neck (playfully of course) and he will never actually bite he just paws.
he picked up biting on anything living is a big no no when he was super young.
He's a very chill dog. Would much rather cuddle then play but it's important to let him have some fun sometimes.
Loves his toys tho!
Maybe if you start playing with him first then have the puppy come over they would start playing together When the husky gets older your going to see what a husky match looks like if they ever start playing together it's the funniest thing. It looks like they are attacking but are actually playing the only way to really tell is the tail wagging. If it stops wagging and they both get stiff something is up

Yes it works I didn't have to do it on my own but I have with a few other people. Mine just kind of went together no real issues. The dominance match when the pup gets older but that going to happen rather we want it to or not. My suggestion for that is make sure you have complete control and can stop it after one of them submits I'm sorry I'm bring you up to speed on everything and it's a year away lol

The sleeping cuddled up together thing must depend on the individuals. All my dogs have always been allowed to sleep in the bed with me if they want. Sometimes they do and sometimes I wake up and they've been in their crate or in another room on the couch or on the floor in my bedroom.
It's not fair to forbid them to be on on my bed and let my cats sleep on the bed with me. And my cats are literally Velcro cats and have to be as close as possible to me at all times. I've gotten home and found the cats and dog all cuddled up and in s pile sleeping together lots of times. They're finally bonded.
My dog really bonded with my formerly feral cat that unfortunately died of cancer last June. He found the cancer and kept excessively grooming his ears. I asked the vet to biopsy and was told it's just otitis it's not cancer. I persisted and it was cancer. He had several surgeries and was declared cancer free and it was a non aggressive cancer that they swore wouldn't return for at least five years. Within two months my dog was going crazy licking the ears again. Back to the vet who insisted the cat was fine. I told him my dog says the cancer is back and he smelled it the first time so he biopsied again and sure enough it was back and had metastasized. One picture the cat had a donut and bandages after surgery and the dog was leaning his head on him he literally tried to care for him and wanted to be with him all the time.
Point of this sad story was the two of them were always cuddling and sleeping together and now I find him sleeping cuddled with my other cats and he loves to be close to me too.
There's definitely exceptions, but all my animals like to be close to each other and touching or leaning. They'll climb over and step over and on each over, lean on and now like contact.
Even my last dog loved being close to my youngest cat. And my two remaining cats are like brothers always on each other.

To Markie
I'll definitely continue doing that.
And yeah We've been through that before as I said our adult dog is very submissive but that may change when being challenged.
We'll make sure it goes smoothly and safely tho.

To Shadowmom
That's what i'm saying.
Love my lil guys cuddled.
Our big dog likes the floor by himself when we're actually sleeping tho.
Just varies from dog to dog.

Mine don't sleep on my bed but they do sleep on the floor except Siku he is still in a crate lol but all of the other ones have their own spots on the floor. Maliki and Tyson have dog beds My need isn't save for them to jump up and down on it's to high safer to keep them on the floor and it kind of gives the cats a safe place.
