I bought a second puppy, female with my present female and it was a disaster. First of all my older femal havanese is 9 years old. she did not take well to a new little sister in the house. The second puppy, also female was fantastic....great disposition didn't bother my dog at all and was a true havanese wonder. However, it was not working out and the first havanese could not handle the change. If I ever did this again I would get the opposite sex for sure as I think there is something to be said for male being more dominant over the femal. Two gemales are not a good mix expecially when there is an age difference as there was here. You are loooking at bonding two dogs close together in age and it may work. If it were me the opposite would work this time to what you have. I hoever, LOVE the females so it did not work out or me...dominant role etc. The little pupoy was returned to the breeder and fortunately found another home where she was the one and only. HAd the two dogs been able to co exist together I would have had no problems adkusting to the changes of a second puppy. You may want to take your male pup with when considering a second puppy to see how they get along?
