Is a male & female ok together?

I have a 5 month old male & am thinking of getting another. Advice I got from the breeder was to get a female, never 2 males together. Is this true?

I have never found it to be a problem to have two males, or two females together. Your going to, or have neutered your male, another male will work just fine.

I don't think it makes any difference.
You should just make sure both are fixed.
I think the main thing to remember is that they are no different than us. They'll have their "moods". But, having them fixed is the first step in the right direction. And, as with kids, the training they receive also plays a big part in the way they behave.
All males or all females or either does not matter, training and having them fixed especially if one is a dog the other is female is important. I have all females, entire, and know a lot with just all males, no one seems to have any problems with either one, all dogs, all females or one of each. With any new one training and a gentle slow introduction to the one you already have is crucial when bringing another into the family. :wink:
It really is the persons own choice. It is said that a male and female work better than two males or two females but it depends a lot on the dog and how they were introduced and when. You have to just remember that dogs were domesticated by humans. In the wild, in their packs, there is always One alpha male and pne alpha female. I guess they say get one female and male so that you dont end up with one alpha female who dominates the other female and vice versa but it eventually comes down to the dogs themselves. Im sure it has to do something with their rank in the puppy pile as well as to what their behavior is going to be like when they go to their new homes and stuff.
