|My oldest is 6 years, and I was happy with only one. Then I unexpectedly ended up with a 6 month old rescue puppy. I would say that the age difference between them (being long lived Chihuahuas) is perfect! She is the perfect mentor to him, and is young enough to still be able to really play with him.
I couldn't imagine not having another older or at least established dog to help guide the young one. If I was in a situation where I didn't have a dog would look to adopt an older dog instead of a puppy. On the other hand, I am kind of on my own when it comes to my dogs' training. If my boyfriend or other family was really involved then I wouldn't need another dog as much, though I still find them to be a great asset!
