Pup to Adult introductions?
My parents own a 7 year old maltese who is about 6 pounds and not very dog friendly. He sometimes will get used to another dog and leave them alone but usually he barks and growls at other dogs. I own a 3 month old german shepherd. I semi-introduced the two of them, both on leashes, the other day. My dog will bark back at the maltese but clearly wants to play. However, he is a puppy and already much bigger then the maltese so I cannot trust them off the leash together. The maltese continues to aggressively bark and growl at the puppy if he gets anywhere near him. Anyway, my question is- Is there anything we can do to get the two of them to eventually live in peace or is this a loss cause and I should always keep them apart? I would love to be able to keep them in the same house (always attended of course do to size difference) because we see them often.
That Maltese will take more training than your GSD, it's not your dog so there is that.
But here are something you need to know:
