Also, when entering the home, make sure humans first, whomever you deem alpha ... then Brutus, then human and then Frankie - it is awkward but means a lot
    We did this yesterday all day. Brutus will bark and growl and try to bite him. I thought maybe let them get used to each other in the yard so We Sat outside with them and brutus did the same thing. When we are not at the house Brutus is perfectly happy. They walk great together.

    It took us a full week for Banks to accept Cheli inthe house... she is very dominate and she was not happy about sharing her home with him. The time it takes him to accept another dog in the house behind him will depend on your patience and leadership strength.

    Does the rescue have a trainer involved to come help with the transition? It is easy for me to write words to help you, but it would be more beneficial to you to have someone show you what/ how to address

    FANTASTIC... keep doing what you are doing... seperate in the house, if it is better and the more relaxed you get the better Brutus will be.
    Seriously, Banks tried to EAT Cheli a few times that first week, we had to keep her on lead and watch all her body movements and non-movement to make sure she knew he was staying and was now part of the pack

    I am also doing what vikinggirl suggested. The crates are covered and I'm different rooms frankie gets 30 mins out while brutus is covered and then I switch and each dog gets a chance to get used to the smell of the other and when brutus stops smelling frantically he us ready did re introduction. Does this sound good to you? Or do you have any other suggestions? I have frankie in the breakfast room kitchen and little hallway right now because he is marking all over the house when he was loose.

    I have heard of doing the crate thing, but not covered.... if it is working go with it. Until he stops marking keep him crated or in an area you can easily clean up

    I'm hoping Brutus is just reacting to the excitement of it all, maybe after a few days things will settle down (including his stomach). If it doesn't work out, that's okay too, only time will tell.

    So far today brutus seems a little more relaxed. He has not eaten yet but I will put yogurt in it and hopefully that will work.
