New dog and old dog not getting along

13 years ago

My fiancee has a 7 year old west highland white terrier (Mac). Three days ago, we adopted a 4 year old terrier (Sadie) from action for animals. Sadie seems to of had a hard life. She was rescued from a breeder and she has clearly been hit. She is very friendly with myself and fiancee, and her and Mac sleep side by side when they are napping. However, when Mac gets to close to Sadie any other time, she attacks with a full on chomp. We are afraid that Mac could get hurt. He has been the boss of the house all his life. How can we get them to completely get along? How long should it take? Please help me out
