Q. Our beagle x cavalier Henry (8yo) is scared of our 6wk dachshund. He walks away whenever dashchund is near and when placed next to him tries to leave.

A. This is not uncommon and I would allow him the space to avoid the pup until he is more acclimatized to his new pack member. Ensure they both get plenty of contact time both together and separately and try to ensure Henry can get access to his bed and original toys without being disturbed by the pup. Feed them individually also until they are friends to limit jealousy
