Thanks for the tips and the compliments! He's laying here chewing on a lamb bone all proud of the fact that he's managed to catch the attention of so many ladies lol!

He's be in grave danger of getting a good cuddle from me if I met him; I absolutely love his regal face, and his name is perfect.

Boris, you are one handsome hound!

Deano, I am sure Boris and his new buddy will do fine. When I introduced Jake to Sophie (a shep-mix) she had been an "only child" for a long time, but she had the best disposition. My approach was two fold, I made sure to love on them both at the same time. I also made sure to give her "special" time with me, even if it was just a walk to the mail box or quick drive to the corner store.

Oh, one other thing, I have also given my "adult" dogs the opportunity for "alone time" when they want it when the puppy is getting to be a bit "Much".

Welcome and make sure to post on Saturday

No advice - I only have the one! Just wanted to say welcome and Bella & I think he's a hunk

I'm sure it will all be fine with the new addition, but good luck anyway

Very well said! He is a handsome boy! Don't really have any advice. My boys just welcome anyone into the herd. So far we haven't had any issues, although it is very interesting to watch how the dynamic changes.

If Boris doesn't like the pup, you can always send him over to us! What a handsome fellow! I agree with meeting on neutral ground. And I would have a crate for the puppy so there are times when he can have some peace (and not have to give up that chair!) Good luck. I'm sure it will be fine, and he will enjoy having a friend

ahh thanks everyone for the replies. I'm absolutely sure everything will be fine. I've got a crate for the little man so I can separate them when he's driving Boris crazy and will definitely spend some 1-on-1 time with him still.

Will give an update on Saturday once little 'Ted' has settled in!

Thanks again - what a nice bunch of people!

Hi everyone. Thought I'd write with a quick update.

So the new German Shepherd pup arrived on Saturday - and they're best friends already. Boris is VERY tolerant of the little fella and his shark-like teeth and just lets him have a nibble most of the time. A couple of times he has lost his patience and let out a little growl and pushed the pup over with his nose to show he means business but otherwise, things couldn't have gone better. They drink from the water bowl at the same time, they sleep together on the rug and generally follow each other around like a pair of goofballs.

Here's a picture of them on Boris' armchair. Was trying for hours to get a pic of them side by side on the floor but it was impossible. In this one I managed to get Ted head-on but Boris was distracted by the biscuit I was waving like a mad man over my head to try and get their attention

Welcome home Ted! That's great they're getting along so well. My girls always hated the newbies and tried their hardest to ignore them but loved them eventually. maybe it's a bitch thing
Gorgeous picture! What a sweet face little Ted has.
