Can I get some idea of the chances - "turned on"

We have had our husky/pit mix Odin for about two and a half weeks now. He just turned four months yesterday. My biggest fear is that when he his 'that age' he will become turned on. We also have a Corgi and three cats that Odin does well with though he can definitely be a bit more rambunctious than any of them care for, such is a puppy.

Anyway, my question is how big of a risk is it he will turn on with age? I know it's always a chance and an unknown but I have anxiety issues and can't stop worrying. If he did turn on, we would certainly keep him but it would be much harder obviously.

Some success stories about multi animal households would be greatly appreciated.

It's a gamble. Obviously you lessen the likelihood of DA if your dog isn't purebred, but it's still a possibility. No one can tell you whether or not it'll happen. But even if it does, your dog may still tolerate certain dogs. My male is DA to any "new" dog, as in any dog he didn't already meet and accept before around 8 months old when his DA started to progress. Any dog he played with as a puppy, as well as my female, he is totally fine with. You just never know, so I can't even begin to guess for you.

While not ideal obviously, I'd honestly be fine with DA toward unknown dogs. My fear is for it to be toward those in our family. I'm a bit stuck waiting on his last round of vaccinations to socialize him much. His second round was a couple weeks late due to a miscommunication between me and the guy I adopted him from so the vet said it was like having started over fresh. He gets his last round in two weeks and then I plan to take him anywhere I can that other dogs will be leashed and hope maybe with some good socialization he will be ok. His puppy class starts in September as well. I know though that you simply never know. My friend has 5 pits that all live together in harmony so I'm hoping I will get lucky with my boy.

I guess for me it just seems like most people I've talked to online have to do the create and switch thing always and that seems like a miserable way to have to live. I know that the people who have multi dog households that get along probably just don't post about it as much but it seems to happen to EVERYONE.

Just be prepared. Both breeds you mentioned have a higher threshold for dog aggression, but every dog is different. Especially when they are mixed who know whats inherited. I had heard and seen some dogs that are as small as a few weeks old and some dogs never turn on! Some dogs it can be around a year, most its under 3 years. So many factors come into play. Again there is no guarantee. Learn your dogs body language and always supervise 100% of the time and be prepared. Crate and rotate might not be ideal for everyone but it's better than a vet bill and ensures everyone's safety.

Huskies and "bull breed" type dogs like Ames said are DA and high prey drive dogs. Huskies usually can't be trusted around small animals but they are a "pack breed" and do like to live with other dogs so you have that going for you! I think the biggest issue you face will be that most likely he will have high prey drive towards animals like rabbits, birds, rodents, etc. and he might be ok with dogs. That part you will just have to wait and see. But there are many bull breed dogs that live happily with the other dog in the household

I made a large create inside that both dogs are crated in when we aren't home. While the corgi has never given reason not to trust her, you never know what could happen. She loves to play with the cats and there is always a tiny risk she could mouth too hard. Someday, when my husband and I have children, we might lock each dog in their own separate bedrooms while we are gone (we can't currently because one bedroom is being used as a junk/hobby room so we only have one clean enough). Anyway, that would give them more room to move. Odin LOVES his kennel and will just hang out in it. Ein, our corgi, is much less pleased about it and has to be loaded by hand daily though she's fine when she gets in there. Like I said if he can get along with Ein and not try to murder dogs he sees out on walks I'll be good to go.

Hopefully I misunderstood, but you don't really crate them together when you leave right? You want to be supervising at all times when they are together, and should definitely not be locked in a small space together. My boy has aggression toward strange dogs, and my girl plays way to rough for other dogs. Thankfully they love each other and get along great though, hopefully the same will be with your two. My boy didn't really like my girls puppy antics so I had to make sure she had her exercise and was tired out so she didn't bother him as much. If she did bother him I would correct and then distract her with a toy, but getting a lot of her energy out before hand helped a lot

The crate is divided. Sorry that did sound confusing! They have a solid 3/4 plywood wall between them and no access to eachother in any way.

I would like them to eventually have bedrooms in the house just for more moving room but that's a ways down the road.

Hey there. I have two "bully" breed dogs in my home. Male and female, spayed and neutered so I don't have to worry about my male trying to get to the female. Lucky for me they get along great. Kai is 2 and Lily is expected to be 3. When I fostered Lily it was more of a trial period to see how they would get along. When I am gone they are separated. Food and toys are never given without supervision. I never let either one get too rough when playing together. They are routinely walked together and trained together. It takes a lot of work even though they get along so I couldn't imagine if they didn't get along. I hope that helps!
