We have one dog, and are thinking of adding another dog to our family. The rescue organizations we are looking at are pretty good at listing which dogs tend to submit to other dogs, and which are more dominant. Thing is, we're looking at medium-to-large dogs, and our little dachshund definitely 100% has an alpha personality (don't all dachshunds? LOL). She loves other dogs, but has never met one, no matter how large, that has made her turn-tail. My question is, would a larger submissive dog still be submissive if the alpha dog is all of 15 lbs?
I guess what would be really helpful is describing the relationship between your various-sized dogs, which dog came home first, which dog is older, which is bigger/smarter, etc. and if dominance is an issue, or if they are on even footing and so on. Thanks!
