Parent's Over Tonight - Socializing HELP!

Hey, we are new owners of (what looks most like) an American Pit Bull Terrier. As some of you may know from the introduction forums the shift before me at the firehouse found him tied to a pole n not in the best of health near the firehouse. They took him in & we all took care of him got him all shotted up and better but there were some "issues" with having the dog in the firehouse so I gave him a home...

He is 45/50lbs at this point and pretty good with things like "sit, stay, no, lay down(still working on it), etc" We've had him home for maybe a week now I think... Here is my question...

We have my parents over tonight at 1am (they are coming home from my mothers side of the family's Christmas gift opening at midnight). They have a Bichon Poo who is not the best with bigger dogs since she was bit by one a few years ago. I am wondering what is the best way to introduce them and not wake up the neighbors downstairs... I was thinking about meeting them outside to do it and then maybe keeping their dog in my spare room & Chips in his "kennel" in the other spare room until the morning then give them more time in the morning when we walk them...

HELP! I unfortunately cannot get them together earlier since my parents live in PA...

Temperments:
Coco (the Bichon Poo): Not great with big dogs due to a dog biting her a few years ago BUT will remain calm if my mother keeps her close.

Chips (my "pit"): So far has done pretty well with a few dogs although I kept the intros short. He had some time with a smaller (less trained pit - female) yesterday at was on but looked like all they wanted to do was jump over each other... I can keep him back pretty well as he will KINDA listen to me... he is about 9-11mon old...

Any help in best ways to introduce them or ideas or whatever will help...

Thank You

Just keep them separated. If its only a short visit for the holidays no need to force the situation. Keep them leashed when they are with you an wait until the next day to see how they might react. I don't recommend introductions at 1am.

Yeah I was hoping to do that but not sure if they will start baking even from separate rooms in the house. Will Coco know that this is Chips home without seeing him? Will they "smell" each other and bark?

How would you recommend I do it?
I was thinking meeting my parents outside (neutral territory) and giving em a quick intro then (hopefully) home n to bed... Or is leaving doors closed the best "I hope this works" option?

Sorry to sound dumb but it's an awkward situation & I'm new to this...

Well whatever you do, just don't pick up coco and put her on chip's face. Make sure someone has coco on the other side and chip on the other side, wait until Chip gives submissive behaviors and coco is neutral, walk by each other and let them lick each there and smell eachother etc. but since it''s their first time be supervised of them c: ♥ hope this helps

That maybe part of what I've been doing wrong in general...
I should let them see each other from maybe 3/4ft apart but not go up to each other until they both settle down?

Yes, you should walk toward each other slowly so they can get familiar but DON'T put pressure in the collar so Once they get settled down, pet them both so they can get comfortable and make sure you put his food and toys away so coco won't try taking over and chip might get mad and there would be a little bit of heat between the both of them, You shouldn't worry that much! Chillaxxxxx , chip seems as a nice dog and could handle coco good. If Chip get's territorial he might pee on things so make sure chip eats goes outside to pee one hour before they arrive and remove his water bowl and toys

The best introductions are in locations that are not "OWNED" by the dogs...so not your property or your mother's. I recommend no introductions at all since you have not had this dog long enough to know all of its ticks. They shouldn't bark at each other from other rooms.

I always make an effort to wear my dogs out a bit before meetings that could be stressful. I'd recommend a big big walk or a good run beforehand.
