I think with a year old GSD you probably still have your hands full so it might not be the best time to get another dog. Unless he's already practically perfect there's still plenty more training you can do with him before even thinking about adding to the pack. And when you're sure you are ready for another dog, the breed is much less important than the temperament of the particular dog/s you're considering. I've had 5 GSDs over the past 28 years and they've all been such individuals that's it's pretty much impossible to make generalizations about them as a breed.

Also, why do you think he needs a friend?
