I feel acceptance to sudden change depends on that particular dog and the people in charge of change. I've had "bomb proof" dogs who take most anything in stride, and dogs who take quite a while to get used to change.

I just thought it prudent to mention the possibility that the new pet might feel overwhelmed if a lot of change happened at once. So let me add to that: Your mileage may vary.
