Rule of thumb says opposite sexes is the safest bet, and I've done it with no problems whatsoever. Would always recommend. That said, I have really come to enjoy having my two boys right now and will most likely continue with this pairing. Temperament does matter however.... typically one would think that the older, larger, more established male would set the tone, but that was not true in my case. Tilden (7yrs and 60# at the time) is generally pretty passive but became conflicted when I introduced Keystone - an overly confident 50# 7 month old with a chip on his shoulder when it came to social skills. They had a rough patch in the beginning, I shut it down right away and they are coexisting champs now and for over 3yrs. I really dig the combo!
