Has anyone added another chihuahua to a home with one chihuahua who is not a puppy any more? Did they start to sleep and play together?

Minnie, Tootsie and Peyton are all 7 years old. Ellie is 1 year old. so, she was a puppy and they were all fully mature when I got her. They all took turns playing with her. Peyton ( my yorkie ), made it clear to Ellie to not bother her too much. she kind of growled and snapped at Ellie but never hurt her. that taught Ellie to back off from Peyton. Minnie and Tootsie never did this. Tootsie especially will just lay there and let Ellie do whatever she wants... like bite on her ears, ect.... hehe. Ellie gets Minnie to playfight sometimes too

Tinkerbell was 9 years old when we added Gizmo, who was 10 weeks old when he came home. Tink was an only dog at the time, but she previously had an older "sister" who had passed away a few months before. She was not fond of Gizmo at all for about 4-5 days, and then she started to warm up to him. She would slowly start to play with him, and would eventually even make the effort to crouch and roll over so he could jump on her, because she was taller than him and he couldn't otherwise. It was adorable lol. Now they're best friends (Gizmo is now 2), and we've just added Finley to the family as well. It takes some adjustment time and every dog is different, but it pretty much always works out in my experience.

I added 4 puppies when millie was 9 months and she was so so happy! I know she is still a young dog although she is very mature for her age and I was worried about how she would react to new dogs around and adding more to the pack was the best decision I've made for them.

I have a nine+year old, a seven+year old, and a 3+ year old. The seven year old and the 3 year old get along well, the nine year old is somewhat of a loner.

I say two is better than one. They will eventually warm up to one another. Some of our members lately have had great success with their new pups hitting it off right away with their current pup. But know, that if the same isn't the case for you to just give it time.

I added an adult to an adult. They didn't really fall in love for a couple month. They got along alright from the start but didn't really bond right away. It was the best for both of them and us in so many ways.

Thank you for all the replies

I don't think it will happen right away but i probably will add another at some point. Honey is nearly 6 now, I recently moved into a detached annexe (i have chronic illness) and so I look after Patch (prt) a lot but he mainly lives in the main house. He is 9 now and when i lived with mum he mostly stayed with her and honey and i were in my room and he doesn't really play a lot so they just ignore each other really.
