My husband and I have a female Basenji who is just over a year old. We are hoping to get her a friend because she gets lonely during the day, but she does really well when having other dogs around. We both prefer female dogs but I do know there is a risk of dogs of the same sex being more likely to have problems with each other.
My dog has been around other female dogs when I stayed with my grandparents for a couple of months and when she stayed with my parents while we were on vacation for a couple of weeks. She didn't seem to have any out of the ordinary issues with the female dogs (aside from when one of them wanted to stop playing) and actually fought more with my parents' male Cocker Spaniel.
Is aggression between females a particularly bad issue in Basenjis? Is it a hit or miss thing depending on the temperament of the dogs? Will getting the second female as a puppy help? Thanks for the advice!
