Hello, my little maltese and I have a question that we've been researching and can't seem to find any solid answers. Maybe one of you could help us. My fiance and I recently bought a house. Its a cape, with a small yard, but a nice park just down the street. Currently we have a maltese that is almost 2 years old. He is pretty well behaved, but not really socialized yet with other pets except my moms maltese that he grew up with. The size of our yard and house is perfect for little Scrappy, and we're very happy. However, my fiance is dead set on getting a Golden Retreiver pup. We do have ample space in the park for the excersize, and he or she will not be short on love and tlc, I am vice president of a boarding and grooming kennel and I know how to take care of a new puppy for sure! The problem...or maybe not so much a problem as just a concern...is I am worried about such a small breed (my maltese Scrappy) and a hyper active Golden puppy that will eventually tower over my little man will get along! Will my maltese get hurt playing? I am so nervous, and I will continue the quest in finding the perfect dog for my finace, however I need to get some info on this. I have seen families come in for boarding at the kennel with a toy yorkie and a bullmastiff in the same pen, but how do I know my baby will be ok? And the new puppy...any info?
