    Yes..I think the marking would be expected..for a full grown male coming into a new house. Do you have any other dogs? I assume he is neutered. You really want to gently..but firmly correct that. What food is he currently on? As @Davidh said..that is all of ours toughest challenge! We are here to help..lots of people here who rescue and volunteer for rescues. May I all suggest...read..read..read!

    Sumo is a good looking fella.
    We got our HRH as a retired breeder and she was 3 1/2. She has adapted to us and our life very nicely. She is an extremely quiet and timid girl. Scared of loud noises and prefers doing everything on a regimented time line. She does not like leaving her rooms. But she loves us like crazy. She gets very excited particularly when I get home from work in the evening. But because of her fears it took her almost a year to want to venture into the scary kitchen. We used to have to physically carry her outside if she got it in her head she didn't want to go out. At first her potty training regressed a little, and we had a few piddle accidents.

    My point is that Sumo will adapt with time and love. But it may take some time to figure some things out, depending on what baggage his former life has left him with.
    And like others have said....good food is so extremely important to bullies. Check out the food recommendations, and if you notice some of the allergy issues associated with the wrong foods that can give you a place to start to find the right one.

    Hi Chuck and Sumo! Lots of different sections full of good advice here. For example, there is a section on bulldog nutrition you should check out. I didnt know that alot of bullies have grain allergies until I found this forum, I put my dogs on a high quality, grain free dog kibble & they are doing so much better! This place is great!!

    Oh yes! For his long term health..get him neutered! Plus it should help him be a happier more easy going guy! Give him some time to adjust to his new surroundings and then get him snipped! When introducing. Do so on neutral territory...maybe outside...and go slow! Is the yorkie a Male or female? You will do fine...he will be a big love and you'll be amazed how wonderful these guys are! @Davidh ..have any tips for him on the marking and introducing to the Yorkie?

    I would just say watch him and when he marks tell him "NO" with a stern voice and immediately take him outside. As far as the meeting the Yorkie, as @JAKEISGREAT said, let them meet outside first and see how it goes. Most Yorkies think they are big and bad. Just keep calm and have fun.

    HI!!! Glad you found us. I hope you enjoy yourself here and with your new baby (they are ALL babies no matter what the age). Food is the key. Period. Get him on a high quality food that his allergies can tolerate and that solves a lot of problems with these wonderful bullies.

    Take them on a walk together on neutral turf. YOU control the meeting. They'll be pals in no time.
