My mom just got a German Shepard as a rescue. He is 11 months old. He is current on all of his shots. He is big, and Bella is scared to death of him. I'm not sure, but it may be because when she first met him, when he was laying down I let her down a little, with me still holding her, to sniff his paw, and he moved it and it kinda hurt her, because she yelped. Or it may be because he's so big compared to her. I have been watching him for the past couple hours at my house, and I finally let him get close to her. He sniffed and licked her butt while I held her. The whole time she kept drying to crawl up my shoulder/neck and was whining. Should I keep them away from each other like she wants? Or should I try to get her to warm up to him?
