Introducing the New Dog!
Hey everyone! I posted in introductions about our newest addition Lady that we rescued. She is about 5 and is mainly Pitt Bull. Sweet as can be, and very submissive to us. She is so well trained I'm sure I can leave uncrated when we're not home. The issue that is holding me back is my 2 cats. You can tell that Lady has never been around cats before and is very curious to get to them. We adopted her on Thursday. Since then we keep her on a leash is the house so we can have control if she chooses to go after the cats. Since then the cats have relaxed a bit and are started to come around her. Last night was the major hurdle my one cat was on my lap while my husband let Lady get about arms length away. She doesn't growl or anything at them which is great. But what now?? Any suggestions to help everyone get comfy with each other. Lady is SO GOOD that I hate that I can't just let her walk around the house on her own. Even though she follows me wherever I go. But the last thing I want is a cat/dog fight on my hands! And my cats are de-clawed in the front so they can't fight her off like most could.
