I thought I was going to have a big problem with my girl Kiya when I brought Lakota home, turned out they became bff's. The way I did it probably isn't recommeded but I was by myself. I had Lakota in a hard plastic travel crate. Went into our yard and sat there. I don't remember how long before I took her out and I did not let her wonder without a long line.
When I brought Kiya home 8yrs ago I did the same thing, she was shipped in so that travel crate came in handy. The 2 other dogs at the time Chazzy GSD was about 9 and Apache was about 1-1/2. I used my deck and let her walk around the deck with the gate by the steps. Introducing those 2 to her was a breeze.
