    Ok, so this is good, I would keep a squirt bottle of water on hand and when she gets over zealous, just give her a squirt and tell her NO, she will stop. Frankie decided he wants to hump Jack and I had to squirt him a couple of times and now he sees the bottle and takes of running! lol

    But, what about what they said about keeping them separate for a month? Does that sounds right (and feasible) to you?

    ETA: I asked if Bella and I could go visit Jade and see if they all get along. That's when the rescue told me that they recommend keeping them separate for a month.

    Well, aside from the initial walk outside the house, i do keep them separate from each other until they get used to being in the house together. In my post I said I keep them apart with a see through baby gate where they can smell each other and come to terms with each other. When they are showing sign of being comfortable with each other, refer back to my post for signs, then I would do the leashed interactions in the yard and then move on to the leashed interactions in the house.

    She is a good looking Bullmastiff and looks like she is small. My buddies Bullmastiff was bigger than she looks in the pictures but I guess they all come in different sizes.

    I would want to introduce Bella to her before deciding also but I have never been in your situation.

    @Cali Doll as a fellow singleton bully mom I have every faith and confidence that you will do right by both of the girls. I am praying for you ladies and hopeful it all works out well.

    @brutus77 is bang on! I've trained big dogs and doesn't matter the size. It's the same training. Right now you cannot think for one second "you're freaking out or nervous" that dog will pick it up ASAP! You need to control yourself first before Jade as you won't be any good to Jade. You've raised your bully quite well so it's the same thing but a bigger mutt lolll. Just relax and breathe before you do anything. I guarantee you, you will do just fine. And like mentioned keep toys n bones away from both dogs when together. Baby steps!

    I know exactly how you are feeling Brutus77 is right on the button with everything , Odin scared hell out of Me he was so big and strong and I am so old and fat you hang in use your instincts . I am not sure about a month of separation sometime it is to cover ones *** if there are issues those type of statement s mean they are like you Jade is a unkown to you all . I introduced Odin right away to the bunch outside and it was fine for all of them . I know the feeling of Panic I went thru it also , I did not let it show they will read it like a book , I was firm at all times and never changed that ever . I was always consistent with them they had to understand I was in charge . You will do good I have full confidence in you . You will be laughing about this in a month Cali
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    Thank you so, so, so much everyone! You guys are an absolutely amazing group of people.

    I told the rescue that I couldn't take Jade. It was a very difficult decision, but I was too scared that I'd be in over my head, which would be horrible for Jade and Bella. I told the rescue that I had too many concerns about taking her, but I'd love to help as much as I can.

    The email response I got said, "We will look elsewhere for help for Jade. She’s about as easy and issue-free a foster dog as you would find, so clearly fostering isn’t for you. I’m glad you let us know before we moved her."

    I guess they're right. I feel like crap.
