Exclamation HELP and advice wanted to help me with my rescue CHI

HI guys, a big welcome from the UK!

OK so ive had my chi mix 3/4 chi 1/4 jack russell nearly a year and decided to get my dog a playmate. I got intouch with the breeder who told me that she knew of one of my dogs litter that was up for adoption. So i went to the house and this poor baby was so badly treated. This dog is nearly 1 and has NEVER been out the back yard, met another dog, been on a lead / leash, been on a walk, he was absolutley filthy too. He is fighting with his brother but i suspose this is becasue he hasnt met another dog since he was 6weeks old. I honestly couldnt leave this poor dog with these irresponsible owners. If anyone could help me with any tips on adopting him, introducing him to my dog, training on walking on a lead / leash i would be so grateful. Thanks so much guys xxx

Did you adopt him already or you are still thinking about it?
He is, you said nearly 1 year old so imo still young, so with patience, love and dedication he will be a great dog.
He has been mistreated and never been out so never met a dog before so it's normal that he is scared/aggressive towards your dog.

I am not understanding your situation. where is the other dog? is he living with you already? or he is at a fosters home or such?

How is your dog towards the other one? is he territorial?
I think with more precise info we could help you better.

If that dog is still in this house were he is mistreated I would take him asap. You say they both fight so I would definitely keep them separably maybe you could set up a play pen and keep one there in another room and make them meet in neutral ground only when you are there to keep an eye on them.

Introduce the harness slowly, first put it on a couple of minutes and gradually increase, if you see he has no problem with the harness on whatsoever attached the leash and let him walk with it on.
Do you have a garden?
You can take him out for a short walk and see how he reacts, is he scared of people going by, cars, other dogs walking by?
This is all information you need, as you can't really know how he feels about anything after you have that info you would know how to approach him.
For instance it could be that the first time he goes out he loves it and so you don't need to worry about that but it could be that he hates it and it's very scared of everything so you will have to take him out maybe for short walks, now that is sunny/good weather? is ideal and praise him, give him treats whatever he likes.

In my experience every dog like every person is different and it's a personality thing, just think about how many people come from a bad family/have an awful illness/were mistreated/are mistreated and so on and no matter what they went through they may be the best people in the world.
What I mean with that is that is hard to know by only assuming..

Hi thanks for the reply

I went to look at the new dog last night and knew straight away he wasnt staying where he was, even if his hone with me doesnt work out he is best off out of there! My dog isnt territorial, he is use to us having visitors and house guest chi dogs. I got the new dog home last night at 8pm and by 1pm this afternoon he has been to the vets, had his first set of jabs and been to the groomers. I bathed him last night when i got him home he was so dirty the vet says he is underweight and with teeth and ear problems. I cannot belive this dog was in the same litter as mine! The breeder isnt at fault, she found out from the old owners he was up for adoption and thats when i stepped in to take him. As for the lead situ, he wont walk with it on. My dog loves walks ect. Also the new dog wasnt allowed indoors, he was outside all the time in a concrete shed thing... UK winters are pretty cold (last winter was so bad with snow) i cant imagine what it would have been like for him. Please give me anymore advice, really want to give this dog a good home xxx ps set up the playpen idea xxx

The only advice I have, is to take everything slowly. Change food slowly, take potty training slowly---no punishments for pup. Maybe he'll take the lead from your other pup.? Go slowly with the walks. Take a week before you even take him from your property. The Whole Dog Journal issue just out has a great article about adopting dogs.

How is he reacting to all this? How you treat him will totally depend on his personality and how he is coping. Is he friendly, shy, frightened, aggressive? Is he toilet trained? How was he with the vet and groomer?
If he is showing signs of aggression towards your dog you will have to be very careful how you introduce them.

I am glad you took him!!! You'll see how much he will change with lots of patience and love.
What are you planning on feeding him? First things first, nutrition is very important, so you should get him on a high quality food asap IMO.
How are things going there? Do you have both dogs separated? What kind of ear and teeth problems does he have?
