My two get along fine - Papillon and Toy Poodle. I think it is less a matter of breed, and more a matter of how well socialised they are as pups, and whether they have had any bad experiences - we had the occasional wobble around black spaniels after meeting a nasty one, but fortunately several happier encounters quickly sorted that out. It does help if the dogs are a similar size - they usually cope anyway, but it is less stressful for you than worrying about one tiny and one with enormous clumsy feet!

The received wisdom is that opposite sexes are most likely to get along, followed by two males - two females are usually also fine, but if they takle against each other they will take it to extremes. Males usually work it out in one or two bouts and then are sorted - or so I have heard. But I have two females and have no problems at all. As you have an entire male, a second male will probably be easier to manage than a female - the advice now is to wait until after the first season before considering spaying, and it is not easy to manage two dogs in one house when their hormones are demanding that they mate!
