4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction.

Well, shoot! Things went so well with Baby for the last month that we decided we would go up and adopt another husky. Except for this time, we think that Nanuck Jr is Malamute. But hey, they have similar personalities from what I have read.
I just wanted to share with everyone that Nanuck is already getting along with Baby. Nookie rubbed all over Baby as soon as she got out of the car and is still nervous about her new home.
Nanuck hasn't been spayed yet so she is technically a foster until 13/3/2020 and then she is officially ours. But until then, we have a whopping three weeks to ensure everything is going to work out and so far it looks like it is going to.
I guess I can throw in a question about Maxx here... Maxx is primarily Shar-Pei and he shows it whenever he gets the chance - the jealousy, the "it's all mine" attitude, the stubbornness, etc. He was already jealous of Nanook Prime and now we have two new huskies for him to get used to. Should we just let him work things out on his own or do we need to be looking into a behaviorist for his jealousy? I do everything in my power to include Maxx in everything I do with Baby. We take them both to the mailbox, we will take all three of them to the mailbox and out for playtimes and individual times out in the yard. So, I was just looking for suggestions and prior experiences with this kind of situation. I would truly hate to have to make a one-way trip back to the shelter just for Maxx if you catch my drift. I think Maxx would completely shut down if it came to that and I can't, in good conscience, do that to him.

My thoughts are if all it is, is noise i would let them work it out. If there is a big risk of an actual fight then i wouldn't let them work it out. My shepherd is the worst when it comes it resource guarding and spider had winter wolf syndrome and splinter is just outright annoying and it gets really loud snarls and teeth showing and sometimes some posturing and i just watch. I will get involved if its getting too crazy. Something ive noticed with mine is that when there really is a fight it starts silently and goes on relatively quiet.
And then there is squirt where we are really trying to make the best of a bad situation.
And thats just observations of my pack. Im not a dog trainer (except mine)

In my group jealousy is more annoying to me than it serves as a bother to the rest of my dogs. I have one that is constantly jealous and attention seeking. I've dealt with guarders before. Setting boundaries for all is important. When I was dealing with resource guarding with food the biggest thing was just making sure all dogs gave other dogs their space while they ate. He isn't allowed to go up to the other dogs eating and they can't walk up to him. I would stand there and set that boundary until it stuck and now I don't have an issue with any of them where food is involved. I still have one that tries to run the others over if you are petting someone other than him and that's been handled by making him wait longer for attention and pets and hip checking him when he starts to try to bang into them. He's so rude.

Well, Maxx slept under the bed as usual last night. Nanuck slept on the bed with her new daddy and Baby slept at the end of the bed. The whole thing has turned out to be awesome. The huskies are accepting each other and Maxx is being the one that demands all the attention.
Maxx is being kind of comical in this situation. He hangs back and watches the huskies get all of the attention and then he quietly bowls them all over at one point or another for his TLC. LOL. As much work as this is, it's worth it and happening faster than I expected.
