We already have a ESS she is almost 18 months now. Brilliant dog, mad as a hatter but so affectionate and very well behaved, very toy orintated, but only at walking, she does seem to love her toys more than other dogs!! The question I have is.... We have got the oppourtunity to have another ESS who is male and 6 years old, he is neutured etc, although Roxy isnt at the moment but is scheduled in Feb next year. Is this the right thing to do will Roxy mind another dog comong to live with us? Is a male better than a female, is the age going to be a problem? So many questions but I just want to do whats best for both dogs. My husband thinks it may be a bad idea as Roxy still a baby and we should get a puppy, so Roxy is the eldest. I dont know how it works and want some advice if possible from any of you who maybe have ESS. Thank you for any advice!!!
