old dog new dog

I would like some helpful suggestions.
My neighbors are wonderful people. They have a 7 year old male dog they adopted a few years ago.

He has adopted my family and I. We are his people, and our yard is his yard.
(In his eyes.) He does not have access to our yard but he can sits next to the fence and watches everything that goes on.
We love him too. He is use to us giving him treats and being very social with him.
My concern is that when our puppy comes home the old guy is going to be very jealous.
I want to introduce them to each other away from both yards at first.
But he does not like other dogs very much. I have talked with them about this, and they are not sure how he would be with a puppy.

I worry that he is not going to except the new puppy next door.
Does anyone have any good suggestions?

I would say puppies come in 3 sizes...LOL.
- soft/easy - medium - tough as nails
Depending on the one you get, could influence how the neighbors dog accepts or rejects the new Klaus...sort of makes your question harder to answer.

Our sons 7 lb YorkiePoo (Trevor) growls and nipped our puppy on the nose, our Kelly could care less...the little sh*t won't be top dog in our house.
He is a very jealous boy now (likes to be the boss, & his world crashed when seeing Kelly), but every visit makes better progress, between the two.
- our last dobe was like 6 years old, when Trevor was a tiny puppy, so little boy grew up with our mild dober girl...and they often slept together

I would not give it to much hope. If he is dog aggressive most likely it would not matter if it is a puppy or not. Are you planing on a male or female. A male would most likely not work at all. More luck with a female. They have their dog and it has come time for yall to get a new one. The other dog will get over it fast if you spend your time with the puppy and not him. The best worry I would have is letting the puppy get attacked at such a young age may make him afraid of other dogs. Just make sure you do not make a problem in your puppy before you even start.

That is what I am worried about the most.
I want to avoid aggressive barking from both sides of the fence.
Luckily their dog kennel is on the other side of their house.
It is only when he has free run of the yard he comes close to our fence.
There is a guy a our local tack and feed store that told me I could give them my puppy's blankets for their dog to smell after he has slept on them until their dog seems uninterested.and getting him familiar with my puppy's scent before they see each other through the fence.
I am going to try this and we will see how he reacts to the new smell without exposing my puppy to any aggressive behavior.

Beaumont, Hopefully I am worrying about nothing.
I am just being overly cautious. We won't know until he is here.
I am just trying to think of ways that would help the old guy not get too territorial over
us, or our yard.
I plan on keeping our puppy on his leash and away from the fence for awhile.
