Bringing a new (male) dog at home

Hello everyone!

4 years ago a friend of mine acquired a wonderfull red nose pitt bull female. Soon after recieving her, he found out that she's pregnant. Results were 4 healthy young puppys (two golden and two black). Through the time it showed up that she was breeded by a labrador retriver. So we are talking lab x apbt mix.

I had two female grounding girls at that time and I strongly believed that bringing a new dog to the house would solve steir problems (running away, being more obedient etc.).

The dog is now 3.5 years old. Unfortunately both my previous girl lost their lives do their health problems. Well my apbt mix became an awesome pet. He is castrated, very obedient, sleeps beside my bed from 10 to 5 no problem, he never peed in the house. He is really a true friend and I love him very, very much.

The problem is that my friend that took my dog's brother, got seperated from his wife. And he pleases me to abandon his dog. My dog's brother. Well, firstly let me tell you that this dog is not castrated. Secondly, he spet most of his life on a chain. Thirdley, he behaves as a though one, a beast. Fortly, when I approch him, he gently hugs me and tries to play with a ball. He is a giant with a soft heart.

The problem with my dog is that he has changed when my two graihounds died. He has been used to be with the dogs all the time. Now he's alone. He sleeps more and he is more sad (it is one week from when I put my other graihound to sleep):

On the other side - a friend is asking me for help. I know his dog fleetingly. I know that every dog can start a new life, but I'm afraid that he is going to influence my dog badly (ie dominanting, fighting etc).

I don a revolution in my heause, nor I want Thor to be put to sleep in a shelter.

Please, dear dog lovers, help me with this situation. These two will also be very happy.

Have you made any decisions?

Ultimately it has to be what is best for your dog, but it would be wonderful if you could help.


The first thing you should do is get the other dog fixed. The sooner the better, as if takes a few weeks for them to loose all those hormones. There are lots of great websites and posts about dog introduction. Doing it properly could help a lot. Meet on neutral ground, and if they get along, then you could try bringing them home together. Again, there are ways to do this to avoid territorial behavior. Regular exercise together can help the two of them bond and get pent up energy out that could cause them to become stressed.
