I have a 11 yr old male shih zhu who is very active and i work alot of hours. I want to introduce a new dog to keep him company but dont want to upset him...any suggestions. The new dog is going to be a smaller breed than him and probally a female.
First, make sure you pet is "pet friendly". If so, then introduce the new pet during a time when you will be around to supervise. Keep your pet on a leash just in case your older dog becomes aggressive. Sometimes the best thing for an aging pet is a new young pet. Good luck, vetcare
