Question The Other Woman

My girlfriend and I currently own a 10 month old, male GSD. We have had him since he was 5 weeks old. He has already went through obedience training and is housebroken. We want to add a second GSD to our family. Instead of going through a breeder this time, we want to adopt through a rescue organization. We have found an 8 month old, female GSD in particular that has sparked our interest.

This will be our first time adding a second dog to our home. First and foremost, what causes for concern should we have? Do you think their ages and sexes would be compatible? Most importantly, how do we go about the introduction process? Should walking, eating, etc. be separate thereafter?

Thanks ahead of time for your insight!
