i may possibly have the chance of a golden retriever,neutered 2 1/2yrs old male (with all jags)which a neighbour can no longer look after.
the problem i have is that i have a 7 yrs old male black labrador (intact) who is a rescue dog (ex drugs dog) who is insanelly possesive when it comes to ANY type of dog coming within 5 ft of me,
with my missus this is not a problem with her praising or giving other dogs treats or scratching thier ear, but if i try to do the same thing he suddenly turns into a green eyed monster and will not tolerate any form of contact between me and any other dogs.
so my question is ..., is there any way possible for me to introduce the two dogs without the two of them tearing each other apart,
trying to establish who is a "intruder in the home and the most dominant male", while at the same time trying to apease my missus that everything will be okay between them and they wont kill each other (not to mention me staying in possession of my vitals!)
any helpful suggestions would be appreciated, as the only other course of action my neighbour has is to give the dog to the dogs trust.
thank you remy17
