Default new dog will hedgies adjust?

We just started an adoption trial for a dog named Rocky. He's doing great and completely ignores the hedgehogs. However, the hedgies don't ignore him. Quinn is taking it the hardest. I took her out yesterday hoping after a few days she would adjust to his smell. She really freaked and balled up which she never does with me. Rocky's smell is probably all over me so I understand. I'm hoping she will get use to it and come around. I have to clip her nails soon and I don't want her to throw a hissy fit. Has anyone brought a dog into the home? How did the hedgie react and do? Will she get over it? Any advice would be appreciated

It may take a couple weeks for her to adjust. The first time I took Piglet to my parents' to meet my dog neither one of them wanted to be in the same room as the other. But after 6 visits or so they both warmed up and Piglet is comfortable exploring the house on his own now.
