    if anyone has any other tips, they would be welcome. i really want molly to stay with us, but not at the expense of traumatizing the little honey.
    l would suggest they meet on neutral territory. We have introduced many rescue dogs into our home and I so believe taking the territorial response away from the "home" dog makes a world of difference. A park or someone else's yard where there are no dogs would work. Keep them both on leashes and go slow.

    That's good that you have a neutral spot ... HOWEVER ... working with rescue you are taught and trained in introducing bullys to their new foster or home, when you first introduce her to your home make sure she is on the leash and YOU are holding it. That way you claim her as your property in your bullys eyes, and also for Molly you are claiming your home to be yours and not hers.

    good advice. i had planned to take molly in myself. a little hesitant to bring her in on the ground...couldn't i be holding her?

    ok here's an idea: do you think it's wise to put a partition (we have a long metal thing that we can put between 2 rooms)...the dogs can see through it and sniff each other but they won't be able to pounce on little molly. we met miss molly today without the bullies...she is the sweetest little thing EVER!

    we brought home a little toy of molly's for them to sniff. usually when they get a toy they grab it and immediately start playing with it. they just sniffed the skunk toy and didn't mouth it. good news????

    meeting is tomorrow.
