Has he ever met a puppy before? He could be confused by this little dog-like thing, and that could be making his interactions come across worse.

I'd continue to separate, but if they're okay being within eyesight of each other, let them.

If it makes you feel any better, I actually had the exact same problem when I brought Chisum home - but reversed. My current dogs were very welcoming of this new little creature...Chisum, not so much. He growled and even tried to attack the other dogs, which I frankly wasn't expecting from an 8 week old puppy.

He slowly got more confident and used to the other dogs. He's even not so bad with strange dogs. It was just a change, I think.

I think if you take it slowly, they'll learn to get along. If nothing else, they'll learn to comfortably avoid each other. :)

You're very aware, knowledgeable, and diligent so I really think it will be just fine.
