In terms of answering, you haven't given us a lot to work with here. What were the circumstances surrounding the attacks before? Indoors, outdoors, what were both dogs doing in the lead up to the attacks?

Bottom line if you think it will be a risk, keep the dogs separate. It isn't fair on either of them to take the risk.

The best way to introduce them is by walking them side by side. You don鈥檛 let them interact with each other, just take them on long walks so they get used to each other. When they are used to each other, acts calm, then the first interaction should take part outdoors.

But as JoanneF said, keep them separated if there鈥檚 a risk of them getting into a fight.
