|I know this isn't a particularly helpful responce, but it completely depends on the dogs in question. Some dogs love to have pals around, some are fine being the only pup in the house.
We got Misty in February of '09, and started looking for a second dog right away since we were pretty sure we wanted 2. It took us 3 meetings with potential 2nd dogs before we found a good match. Misty is a dominant female, despite how submissive she is with people. We found a good match in Fagan who is a smaller, more submissive, male. There was really no question who was going to be in charge. When they first met Fagan walked right up to Misty and licked her in the face, she let out one soft growl and he ran away, they have been best friends ever since. They play together, and wrestle, and run, they are attatched at the hip. As I am typing this they are playing tug of war with a nylabone, happy as can be!
