    Unhappy New dog versus old dog

    We adopted a 1 yr old doberman a couple of weeks ago and also have a 6 yr. yorkie, my problem is that the dobie is still very young and wants the yorkie to play with her and i'm afraid she is to rough for the yorkie. The Yorkie also does not want to play. We cannot get the dobie to leave him alone. What can I do to train her to not bark and mess with the yorkie? I'm afraid she may hurt him playing to rough.

    Dogs are a lot tougher than people think. I doubt the pup will hurt the yorkie. The much older yorkie will probably be able to put the pup in his place when she needs it. It sounds like he is tolerating her now. The time will come whn he tires of her and will put her in her place.

    Tolerating

    He does seem to tolerate it some, but also puts her in her place at times. My concern is the dobie doesnt realize her strength or size yet and may hurt him.
