    How old is she and are you referring to off the lead with your other dogs or other dogs in general?

    Quite an odd question! Only you can know the answer, do you know the dog, where are you getting her from?

    Well then the person to answer your question is your friend! If your friend assures you the dog is ok with other dogs then as you say, you will need to let the dog settle with you and you need to know you have a recall, after that then there would be no reason not to let her around other dogs

    I don't understand the question. Is "the lead" a leash? Before accepting the dog, I would introduce it to your other two first in a area like a park to see how they get along with each other. Muzzles are NOT a bad idea. They are not cruel, it's a matter of safety for all concerned, the dogs and the people.
