Rescue meet n greet
I posted earlier in the week about adding to the pack and we just got back from our meet n greet. I was so proud of Tasha, who I thought would be my trouble pup...she did wonderfully meeting Boot (the aussie mix). I was surprised and disappointed that our old lady Sadie did not do so well. She approached Boot in prey mode, which we promptly backed off and I corrected her. Eventually we were able to walk together without issue, but it took quite a while. Boot was very submissive with both girls and SO very laid back. I could tell immediately that he was a very well balanced dog. Things did calm down for Sadie overall and she did the butt sniff on Boot but when it came time for Boot to sniff her, she snapped at him. I am disappointed that it didn't go as well as I was hoping for, he really seems like he would be a good fit if we could get past Sadie's issues. He was a really sweet, mellow dog and even gave kisses!! ( i love that) The rescue lady is going to put me in touch with another in her group that is a behaviorist and we will see how that conversation goes. I certainly don't want to force anything, I was just hoping we could bring a boy back into the mix.
