Default Adding a third dog

Hi all,

I'm Ann, proud servant to one purebred GSD female (1 yr.) and one gsd/golden retriever mix.

A friend of mine's father can no longer keep his 2.5 yr old female GSD due to a debilitating stroke. He's going straight from the hospital to the nursing home, so my friend asked if I'd like his dog. She's known to be great with adults, kids, babies, cats, and birds. She's apparently never been around other dogs though.

Any tips for making a peaceful introduction? I know to introduce them in neutral territory, on leash, one at a time.
Any other suggestions, other than keeping the new dofdog on leash in the house as she adjusts?
