    Just introduce them properly. Start by taking the puppy's toy home one day. Let your current dog sniff it as he pleases. When you take the puppy home, hold him and let the boy Basset sniffs him. If you are nervous or he growls at the new puppy, put the puppy in a separate room, and let them meet each other through the door. After awhile, try letting puppy meet the boy Basset again.

    For the frist time you may get a couple of fights but after a while they will learn to love each other. But make sure you dont get a male puppy because your older basset boy will get territoral. Trust me I am a foster parent. Love, Rambo's big sis
