Do introductions with a walk on the property. Don't let them focus on each other.

There may be issues with the two females since they don't always see eye-to-eye. The same goes with males.

I would recommend the third female be spayed. There may be a better chance the two females will get on although not guaranteed. However, the male may keep it calm between them.

Spaying her will also keep her from becoming pregnant by another dog that may come close to the property. Believe it or not, it can happen through a fence. There is also less of a chance of her wandering should she manage to get out of the fencing whether climbing or digging underneath.

And, yes, pen her, as well until you're sure they'll get on. Make sure the pen is big enough for her to move to the other side of it so she doesn't feel threatened by the other two dogs and can find her own space in the pen. She'll have a house in the pen, too, so she can just get away.
