Exciting news! Looks like we'll be adopting a second puppy to add to the family! In one of those "it's clearly fate" kind of situations, my girlfriend and I had been talking about looking for a second dog to give Hank a friend. But we had reasonably specific criteria; had to be another rescue dog, had to be small, had to be a girl (as Hank is clearly a boy, and apparently introducing a second dog works better if they are the opposite sex), and importantly, we wanted another odd mixed mystery breed. Well, today we stumbled across this young girl on Pet Rescue; She's a 12 week old mixed breed (parentage listed as staffy/maltese/shihtzu/mystery) in Mildura. But wait... Mildura? We live in Canberra. Not to worry! The universe thought of this too! We're driving (with Hank!) from Canberra to Adelaide over Easter and staying in Adelaide for 10 days. We will be passing through Mildura to get to Adelaide! Woah, universe; you work in freaky ways. So, we sent off an application for to adopt little Sage this morning... we just found out we've been accepted. Wooo! So this gives Hank and Sage 10 days to get to know each other, and get comfortable with each other, on neutral territory in Adelaide, so that when the time comes to bring them both home to Canberra, hopefully we won't have any dominance/territorial behaviour from Hank. Also, the fact that Sage is so young, and Hank is 18 months old, will hopefully help that cause too. Anyone got any tips for introducing a second dog to our family?
