I think that Ari has a good idea. Take the two for a walk together. Obviously, they would both be leashed. (harnesses are great) If you keep the pup in a crate a lot, the adult will not be able to interact safely. I greatly advise a pen that the puppy's bed, food, water, and a few toys are in. I use a crate/carrier in my pens. I cover the floor with human grade pee pads that are washable. I wonder if you held your older dog in your arms and sat on the floor, what she'd do? She couldn't run, and she'd be safe, 'cause she's being held by someone who she trusts. Time will help.
