Really, it depends on Dizzie's personality.
Roscoe is very loving, not territorial or possessive at all. He LOVES to play with the younger puppies at the dog park, so because of his personality, I knew he would not be jealous or put off when Stella came home. I have always made a point of acknowledging Roscoe first - in the morning, he gets out of his crate first. When I come home, I greet him first, etc. so that he does not feel as though his position of "top dog" is threatened. Every now and then, he will have a bratty moment when I am with Stella and he just comes and knocks her over or whatever. Obviously a little jealous there. But overall, it has been a wonderful decision to add Stella to our family, and I'm very, very glad they have each other.
I guess what I'm saying is that it's great to have two dogs, and it could also be a disaster to have two dogs. You just need to choose personalities VERY carefully!
