So tonight we re-introduced Harlow and Ollie and they avoided each other. No anger, no playing, just avoidance.
We have introduced Degan and Ollie and they avoided each other. They did smell each other's butts, but that was the extent of it.
We have also introduced Harlow and Boss, and Boss avoided her, but Harlow clearly wanted to play with him. She would flop to the ground and wag her tail and even crawled under him at one point. He just looked at us like, "what the hell is she doing?"
So my first question is, what do I think of avoidant behavior? Is it good that at least they're not jumping at each other's throats? Or is this just as bad?

They are getting their shots and neuter on Thursday and I guess I will take them to my vet on Monday or something if they aren't getting a full vetting at the spot clinic...(I know, I really need to figure this out).

I just don't know what to do now.
