my uncle has a 9 years old  male dog. a week ago he brought a young female puppy for him and they have been well with each other. we found another female dog in the mountain in a bad situation and took him to the garden where others living. those two female dogs had fight because of a male one. we didn't suppose its going to happen when we found her in the mountain because our female puppy was with us and they had a good relation . we give food to the new female dog out of the garden over the door and she has been there for four days. Any suggestion? please help us to not do the wrong action.

Hey,

Good work rescuing her happy are you going to keep her...

If so look at it like this, for any dog (or being for that matter) when someone walks into your home and you don't know them... You too would be a bit on guard, till you got to know the person right; same with most animals. What I'm saying is they need to be slowly introduced a couple times a day and gradually build on that increasing the frequency if you are wishing to adopt her... Keep them sleeping and eating separately to avoid fights and make sure that when you have them separated throughout the day make sure they can't see each other... So then when you decide to take the older female back over it will be like a visit so they can slowly get to know each other...

Also I might help to introduce the females without the males present so then they can get to know each other with out the competition (lol silly girls) then free they have already become friend then put them all together as generally males don't really mind the company of a female so there won't be issues there.

Females are much more fierce, they are far more aggressive fighters. Also if this other dog you found has been attacked before you're going to have more difficulty establishing her into the group as her immediate defense is to be aggressive if more than 1 dog present.

When you put 3 dogs together you have formed a pack and they will try and sort out a pecking order. When dogs have strong human pack leader this does not happen. Your job is to show that you will not tolerate aggression to the newcomer. The best thing you can do is invest in a large dog crate, the new dog should be inside the dog crate when introduced to the other dogs, they can have a sniff, suss each other out but if ANY aggression is show you must step in and show that no aggression towards the new dog is allowed. You have to show you're the pack leader.

Unfortunately if you've already had a fight break out, it will take a lot longer for these dogs to be together if ever and pecking order has been established and the new dog is traumatised by this and will only show aggression to the one who attacked her. It can be difficult work introducing a new dog into a family, especially when it is the 3rd dog making it a pack.

Best of luck happy

Made some good point there!! Just I wouldn't opt for the crate... it would make the female that's being introduced feel like she has done something wrong and is being locked up as punishment...

I would just use a fence that way only the one side is restricted and she isn't boxed in; she has been through enough already so this I feel would add to her trauma. But yes this process is going to take time, and lots of love..... but also the no-nonsense attitude.

The puppy is showing dominance dosent mater what sex they are it's the eye contact and if tails are up and ears up yes there will be confrontation if the puppy is showing these signs she must submit put her rear end so the other dog can smell and then puppy should smell the other dogs rear it's saying hello look at signs as I said above and you will know which one is starting first but don't ever keep them separated the behaviour will escalate plus repromound the dog which starts aggression first can also do this by having them both on leads  2 people two dogs walk close but watch for signs you are their pack leader not them, also dogs will also attack if they sense the other dog to be weak or has issues that empowers them , puppy is young enough to submit once he does you should be fine just get to know the other dog and you have a lovely heart to save her....
