Shepherd. Don't get a pet for your pet. Get another dog if you want another one in your life to enhance YOURS. Your dog is happy for you to give it time and attention, not necessarily to split it. Be aware that your dog is still young, and when matured, may decide it doesn't want another dog around.
Your dog grazes (unnatural behavior) because food is always available. Build some anticipation and excitement for meal time by limiting how long it stays down. It may take a time or two of the dog not finishing, but eventually they will learn you snooze, you lose. This will help you to be able to feed two dogs (if you get another in the future) .. each with its own bowl and a time limit to eat.
