    Well the day has been excellent. I have discovered that my dog goes rigid if I get in between them so have taken care to keep space, But they have played themselves into this state of complete exhaustion. I have developed a brand new respect for people who introduce rescue dogs into their house on a repeated basis, kudos to you guys!!!

    Glad to hear they are getting on now...it can be a very scary time. Years ago I took my then GSDs Rex and Tara to the shelter to meet a beautiful Rottie Opal...they all got on well with no problems.

    When I picked up Opal I let her out of the car and she wandered around the yard for a while...both Rex and Tara were inside. I brought Tara out first on a lead and kept her on a short lead...all went well considering both were bitches. When I brought out Rex he wanted to kill her and it took all my strength to hold him back...but within 5 minutes he accepted her and as they say "lived happily ever after" well nearly as Tara had one or two fights with Opal over the years...but that's a bitch thing.

    When I went to see Chloe I took Rex and they got on well so I brought them home together...let them walk around the yard together but kept an eye on them just to be sure...this worked for me but might no work for others.

    Yeah, I did watch them very carefully, the children worried me, I think it helped neither dog belonged to the children so weren't protective about them at all. They had a couple minor eruptions about who knows what and got told off very firmly and both dogs downed ears and tails and sloped off.
    I am home now with an exhausted border collie, slept for the four hour journey home, woke up for dinner then back to sleep...lol I have never been so vigilant in my life and I teach small children. Daisy is exactly the sort of dog I would normally avoid, large, anxious, steel jawed and unsocialised. Well at least now she can play nice...lol
