Well to start they are both young so they may get along now but that may not last long... My suggestion is if you do not have experience with owning two bully breeds in the same house do not do it until you have read the numerous posts here about it...

A few things you will need to buy before you do it are two crates, a break stick and books and research...

Never let them be alone together unsupervised and always keep them or at least one crated if not supervised... Be ready for the unexpected cause a fight can break anytime anywhere... Be prepared for the day they can't stand the site of eachother... The older one may be ok until he's about two same with the younger but just because they get along now do not let that fool you... Always keep your guard up... Do not let them have toys, bones, rawhides or food together... I feed in their crates to keep them separate...

Getting a female who is fixed is probably a better scenario but isn't guaranteed either... Fixing both males may help them getting along and might not... I have had two males at one time and it can be a huge handful but can be done if you dedicate the time to them...

If you do not have time to do separate walks, separate feeding, separate playtime, and separate everything else then don't get another one... If you are willing to commit now but in two years when they don't get along and have to be separated constantly you want to get rid of one then don't get one...

The most important part if you do this be under the knowledge that you are committing to two animals for a lifetime that could be difficult to handle... And always keep in your head that once you have them you are responsible for both of them for their entire lives and you cannot rehome either one of them... Otherwise you would be contributing to the problem and I wouldn't suggest getting another...

Good luck and keep me posted!!

Sarge that's some good advice And to the OP I would take it... Owning multiple bulldogs under one roof can be quite the exp. especially for a new comer to the breed. If you can hold off all together that would be ideal. But if you must always be prepared to crate and rotate no matter what the sex of each dog and invest in a break stick. Bulldogs are known to be DA= Dog Aggressive. It can happen at any time and at any age. Fighting between bulldogs or other animals in general is not uncommon with this breed and they only get better at it over time. Welcome to the forum def have a look around lots of good info on here about maintaining and properly caring for this breed responsibly. Let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

If you are set on getting the second pup be perpared for the extra work load. You will have to train seperatly as the two will not listen to you if you try to train at the same time. You will need extra patience too as what the one won't get ito the other will and the extra money it takes to have two dogs.
