Puppies are typically more easily accepted by adult dogs than other adults. That said, it can work when adding a new adult dog to your household BUT you have to know your current dog, how willingly they accept other dogs, match the new dog's temperament to your current dog's temperament to figure out the best fit, and have a backup plan in the event that it doesn't work. If you go the adult dog route, read a few articles about adding a second dog. Some dogs really like being an only dog and if your old dog and new dog don't get along it can make the whole family miserable!
