|I think getting another dog from a shelter or even a rescue would be great! I mean I don't think Jake would care, as long as he got along with the dog, where it came from, but me personally I knew I wanted to take home a shelter pup for our second dog. There are so many great dogs that need a home. If you wanted to know more about the dog than going through a rescue where the dog is fostered might be the way to go, so you can find an adult dog who doesn't have so many things to work on other than basic house manners. Breed specific rescue in this case would definitely make it easier on you whether you go Beagle or Basset.
You could go with a male, since hounds aren't really known for SSA then as long as the two get along then I'd say that's not a problem. Our two boys get along great. But in general it's usually recommended to get the opposite gender. Breeders do sometimes have young adults, but I couldn't tell you much about that since I have no experience. But it would be the same as looking for a breeder for a puppy, making sure they health test and title their dogs and all that good stuff and then reach out to them and ask if they have any adults or if they ever do.
