I also think it makes little difference what sex the pup is, so long as their personalities work well together. It's hard to know some traits in advance, in a young pup, but for the most part a good breeder can pick out some things about the pup that you may or may not find compatible.
If Ella is very active, playful, a bit dominant, very smart and knows a lot of commands, you might want a pup (boy or girl) that is either the same or the opposite so there is a bit of a balance. I wouldn't want two Sammy's for instance, although having both Sammy and Ricky works perfectly for us! Two Ricky's would mean me spending a lot more time with them, keeping them entertained as he is very active and playful.
If we were to get a 3rd, I'd be asking first about personality of the parents and if the pups are already born, then what the breeder thinks would work best with our family and lifestyle. The older dog will interact very well if you're confident in your choice of pup.
