Introducing New Puppy to Resident Dogs

I got a blue nose Pit Bull that is 2 months old. Is it OK to leave her outside in the backyard, and how can I get my two other dogs to get along with her?

What do you mean, leave her? She is a baby. You have to watch her all the time. You can't leave her alone even for a minute. She could eat a toxic plant or mushroom or choke on a piece of bone or toy that your bigger dogs left lying around.

Your dogs should accept the new baby pretty easily, but watch all their interactions. They are much bigger and could hurt her accidentally. Also, the sight of a very small puppy running could trigger the prey drive of one of your dogs, so you need to be there to intervene in case this happens.
