We have a 3 year old yellow lab who has been the best possible dog we could ask for. He is extremely affectionate, docile, perfect with our kids, and gets along with every dog out there. We all want another puppy, but we are really nervous adding to this dynamic because we have it so good with Finley. We don't want him to change, nor do we want a 'bad egg' of a lab and ruin our perfect little family thing we got goin on So I guess I'm posting for a few reasons...I'd like some advice on should we even do it? And if we do, is there a preferred way of doing this? ie, go for a female, bc we already have a male? Or does that even matter? We take Finn to a farm/kennel occasionally and the owner says he is a 'beta' and that is a big part of why he gets along with almost every other dog. Should we ask the any potential breeders for thoughts on the Alpha/beta thing for our best chances? Just looking for a bit of guidance I guess. TIA!
