9 yr old Akita meeting a 5 yr old Aussie????
« on: April 29, 2009, 11:19:10 am »
OK, I am adopting a 5 yr old Aussie this weekend  ;D.  However, my fiance has a 9 yr old Akita.  Having read some of the posts in this section....Do you have any advice as to how to sucessfully introduce them and ultimately have them tolerate eachother?  There won't be any worries w/the Aussie, but we're very concerned about the Akita.

Thanks.  I don't expect this to go well.  Although he is great w/people, he is very aggressive w/other animals & will try to kill them. 
Guess we'll keep them seperated.   :(
Thanks for responding - appreciate it!   :)

Did you get your new pup this weekend?
Yes I did!  I'm so happy with him! What a great dog!  He's very smart and has quite the personality!  Almost a bit of a smart-azz already!  LOL!  And, if it's this good already, he'll be wonderful when he's settled in, realizing this is his new home.

Don't think my cats have figured out he's here to stay, yet, but they're all doing fine w/eachother.
 
Not going to fool around w/meeting the Akita other than at a very great distance and not until he's totally comfortable. 

Best thing I've done in years is adopting this guy!   ;D
