I waited till Tim was about two to get my second. Tim was totally house trained and also well trained in other areas such as leash walking and knowing the other basic commands such as stay, sit down etc... Something else I did shortly before bringing Mae home was crate trainig. Timmy and Mae LOVE each other and are best buds. Something I am concerned with is Mae's dependency of needing Tim around. I worked pretty hard trying to do things individually, especially with Tim, so Mae could get used to being alone but she hates it. If you have a well trained dog to bring a puppy home to they will be invaluable. If you bring a puppy home to a dog that still has accidents inside or isn't where you would like them to be in terms of favorable behavior you might be signing up for double trouble. I'm not sure gender means a whole lot, you should be more concerned with personality. Work with your breeder or foster mom regarding personality, I was looking for something specific and couldn't be happier with my decision. Good luck!
Forgot to say added expense. Double cost on food, grooming, heart worm meds, tick/flea control, vet visits and yes toys can be something a lot of people don't consider so please remember that too.
