I would have to say it would depend on the Socialization of the Dog.. If the Dog was socialized with other dogs from a young age ... then she should be fine, Also, if she is Spayed that makes a difference.. Same with Male dogs, Even tho I think 2 males are more then likely not to get along. But with the right socialization they should be fine. I have 1 male and 1 female now, But i Had a nother female, we put tosleep in May, and they all got along great... I have a foster Dog now, that is also a Female, and they LOVEEE Each other with a Capital L! I have to seperate them at night otherwise I Wouldnt sleep! lol

Is she ever aggressive with female dogs or dogs in general?
Dogs have a pack instinct, sometimes the dominant female will fight the other and establish she is dominant and then no more fighting, but if that one becomes dominant she has the right in her mind to fight the other anytime she pleases...
Maybe get a friends puppy or something and bring it home just to see how she is around her.

Thanks, everyone!
Right now she is 6 months and she will be spayed. I plan to get the second dog after she turns a year. She's a Shih Tzu & I plan on getting a Bichon. Now, Shih tzus are dominant dogs anyway and when she fist met my sister's Silky terrier (male) she was really aggressive with him. He was shaking. But I don't think she meant it to be mean, she just really, really likes to play. When we cross other dogs in the street or pet shop she is always eager to try to get to them (e.g. barking, pulling the leash, etc.). Is that considered being aggressive?
I just wonder if she'll be too dominant for a Bichon...Maybe another shih tzu would be better, if it has to be a female.

Sasha gets on with other dogs fine apart from females of her own breed, I dont know why but i may be judging too early as it is only one female staffy that she doesn't get on with. The other staffy is abit of a bully (or the owner hasn't socialised her well ) and sasha backs away showing the whites of her eyes and then starts growling and snarling

I agree, how does your current bitch react to other dogs in general and visiting the house? If there are any indications that she is not dog-friendly generally this could be a bad mix. If she loves canine company then another bitch shouldn't be a problem. I think you increase the chances of having trouble if the two dogs are similar age, breed, size - less risk with an older bitch and a puppy. Let us know how it goes...

I have four females and 2 males that run together and my new puppy comes in tomorrow. West German Shepherds, so smart and obedient. If you stay in charge of a pack of dogs they respect you as their leader and boss u can run any sex together and they will get along.

I think thats the reason she doesn't like her. Sash is fine with other dogs, and is great with all the dogs she meets, esp my mums dog and the nieghbours GSD and GoldenXLab

I will agree with Sheplovr.
If you are the boss,you shouldn't have any problems.The 2 breeds you will have,are not highly dominant.If you socialize yr dogs well,you'll be fine.l
