So last year we rescued a 1 year old german shepard/husky
Then in febuary we rescued a chow something mix. (Was supposed to be husky but isnt, she's still pretty little)
Today we seen on Craigslist a husky being given away for free. We have enough room, didn't want him to go to a bad home so we got him.

Now the two we already have are being super aggressive towards him (they've never been like this around any other dog, we socialize them regularly) I know now that we shouldn't have had them meet in our home but I didn't when we brought him in.

How do I get them to get along? I really don't want to have to re home the new addition. : /

It's only been a day. That's normal. They will eventually get use to each other and get along.

Keep the newbie in a separate room for now. Introduce something like a blanket with new dog's scent on it to the other dogs and vice versa. Let them sniff under the door. This all takes time and patience, so don't expect one big happy family overnight.

Thank you. I just didn't foresee this since the other two got along so well at first.

Maybe just time will fix this.  What are their names?.

I would let them work it out in a safe environment. Once the third dog recognizes the hierarchy they will be fine.
