    It would probably be helpful if you provided more details as to what you're looking for in a puppy. Or even which breed. They all are different and may have different traits. You're very unlikely to find a puppy this way.

    There's TONS of puppies and dogs available for adoption in your area as well. If it's just for companionship you could find the perfect new brother for your other pup. Of course there are many reputable breeders as well. Which ever way you go, good luck!

    Dog aggression is very common among the bull breeds. What happens if the dog's grow to dislike one another? Will you get rid of one? If the answer is yes or even maybe, please do not get another dog.

    Any dogs or pets you add to your household should always be for yourself, not another pet.

    Listen to St@ffy and Uno. these breeds don't always get along with others. I have 2 that don't get along. Please research and then more research. There are already enough of these dogs in the shelters don't add another one.

    Small dogs can be aggressive with each other as well. My sister's Corgi used to attack her Pomeranian all the time for no reason either. She even tries to attack both my dogs. Some dogs just don't get along with others. She had to separate them all the time when no one was home and constantly monitor them. Is that what you guys do at your place Steve?

    Yea, almost all the dogs in the shelters here are Bull terriers, Terrier type mixes, or Chihuahuas.

    Sure, any dog can be dog aggressive but the point that we're trying to make here is that this breed group is specifically predisposed to being DA toward other dogs. It's even in the breed standard as acceptable temperament. That should tell you just how common and expected it really is.

    Dogs, especially those bull breed dogs, should be separated when unsupervised, even if they get along well. There is often little, if any, warning that a dog is about to become DA. It's a genetic trait that can pop up at the drop of a hat. Heaven forbid it happens while you're not home. Plenty of stories of folks coming home to a bloody mess of 2 dogs, who "used to love each other", maiming or killing each other while left unsupervised. Learn from their mistakes and separate your dogs when you're not home.

    Hopefully it's never an issue but the chance is always there.

    Uno is 100% correct, any dog or breed can be DA, i think most regs here know that. In fact some of the smaller dogs i have owned are meaner and more aggressive lol. Difference is, a bulldog was bred to fight for many many years and the traits that were bred into them both physical and mental can't be ignored or trained out, years of genetics and breeding should ALWAYS be taken into consideration if you plan on having two bulldogs or bull breeds in the same living area, even if the dogs get along great, they should never be left alone for very long.

    Luckily both of my dogs follow me around like a puppy so they are always on my heels when i leave the room but the times they don't follow? It never fails, they are wrestling and playing and bulldogs don't play lightly, i have had to stop Trin and Broly a couple times now as they were starting to get carried away. Practice and treat certain situations like they are indeed DA and you won't have to worry as much if it does come on because you are prepared, better to be safe than sorry imho. This doesn't mean that everyone will be DA but as Uno stated, they are predisposed genetically so IMHO, it is better and safer to treat certain situations as if they are or could be, such as leaving them along for any extended periods of time.

    Also agree with Uno on the DA coming on. From what i have seen, once a dog becomes DA (not sure if it's the same way the first time it happens), it's literally like a light switch, it turns on and off! I never noticed how it really is like flipping a light switch with most DA bulldogs, maybe all DA breeds are like that and i never noticed it but first time i really seen it was at a show and i'll be damned if it wasn't as if someone was flipping a switch somewhere turning the dog on and off. No raised hackles for the most part, not much of anything until that switch turns on after seeing another dog and even then i didn't see much in the way of raised hackles, it was just pure drive wanting to get to the other dog, then it would switch off. Then back on again..
