    so we should be getting our rescue crestie boy on the 28th :D :eek: :001_wub: , never had a rescue before and never had more than one dog ... our dog generally is freindly with most dogs but we are planning on introducing them outside the house and possibly taking them a little walk together first??
    then im thinking set up a seperate area for new dog to sleep ? and feed seperatly to start with ?
    any one got any tips on introducing a new dog into the family?

    Aww well done!I usually take them for a walk like you are intending then make more of the resident dog when we get home theres usually alot of rushing about and growls but thats normal,I have never had seperate sleeping area and have brought 6 in over as many months,my sheltie did sulk for a few days when a newbie arrived but soon got over it,I would say just keep calm,bet they will be the best of mates in no time.good Luck xxx
