But sometimes, even when introductions are well-supervised, pets can still struggle with new arrivals.
This is definitely the case for this huge Great Dane!
When his mum brings home a tiny Harlequin pup, he simply doesn’t know what to do with himself!
He starts by sniffing the little fella, but then lets out unsatisfied grunts and grumbles. He’s clearly not excited about having to share his mum’s love with someone else! In the end, he turns to his owner for comfort. He places his two front paws on her shoulders, towering over her. Mum strokes him consolingly, letting him know that she loves him too.
Giants size, giant hearts
Great Danes are one of the biggest dog breeds in the world – in fact the tallest one measures 1m35! But despite their monstrous size, Great Danes are just gentle giants. They are described by many fans of the breed as being the most affectionate of dogs, who also do great with children.
We’re sure these two will end up getting along in the end, just as long as mum has enough love and attention to go around!
