How do I get my adult pomeranian and puppy chihuahua to get along?

My female adult pomeranian is terrified of our new chihuahua puppy. He chases her around everywhere, and my pom just runs. How do i get them to stop this?

I think that is going to be a bit hard chihuahua dogs are very jealous and protective of their owner they do not like to share them.

Get some baby gates,put one in one room and the other in the hall way to that room, make sure its a little space, next get them spayed and nutered. well when they get better and they are use to seeing each other all the time show them both alot of attention give them the same amount of toys, dont make one think that he is stealing that one person away. thats really all you can do or take them to a pets mart and they have training sessions on this kind of stuff, trust me it works!

Cassie above gave a pretty good answer. Here is what I have experienced with one of my clients though. After all the training and introductions, you may still end up with a very terrified dog. Because of territory, at some point…those two will develop a rank. One will be the hierarchy, and the other the lower rank. That is normal with dogs. Keep a close eye that the chihuahua does not start bullying your pom. (I introduced a my older 90lb boxer to an adopted chihuahua. After 1 week, the chichi was the boss! And started attacking my boxer at the food dish, and for toys and treats) If you see any of that behaviour, consult a doggy behavioural specialist through your vet! The might even have to be put on calming meds for a while! GOOD LUCK!

Pomeranians and chihuahuas are individually territorially and possessive. I'm not sure you will ever be able to "get" these two breeds to "get along". You may have to choose whether you want a pomeranian or a chihuahua.

Put your chihuahua in your lap. Bring the pomeranian into the room. When the chihuahua doesn't bother your pomeranian, give him a treat. Show your chihuahua that this pomeranian is a good thing.
