Ok, I usually suggest you take your dog to meet this dog at a neutral place--so a park on the way home or something. Then go home, try the backyard, then in the house--if you have no issues with any of those things (as in them being together supervised) then you can leave them unattended after a week or so.

Otherwise, eventually they will sort things out on their own but in the beginning help your present dog maintain alpha (it will help prevent her nose getting out of joint) Allow her to eat first, go through a door first, be petted first, etc.

Let me know if you need anything else, but it doesn't sound like there should be a problem.
