Advice needed on adding a new pup to the family

Hello to all! I need your realistic advice on my plan to get a new pitbull puppy in the family.
I live with my 7-8 yo female pitbull rescue. She has absolutely no DA in her, even if provoked she just wants to run away, so life with her is really easy concerning other dogs.
My family with which we gather often have 2 dogs, male Golden Retriever and female Boston Terrier.
The male is great with my pitbull, they meet quite often, they are good friends etc.
I am thinking of getting a male pitbull to live with me and my dog. I am quite experienced with dogs, obedience training, socializing, but my pitbull experience is only with rescues, being a foster home for several pitbulls and my girl is the first pit I’ve lived with for a longer time.
IMO my older pit would be a good example for the pup in terms of accepted behaviour in my home and provided enough obedience training, socializing and exercise I would be able to get my future male pit to get along if not with all dogs, at least with mu dog and the family dogs.
I have a very good Schutzhund club I would like to attend with him. I am not sure if I would like (and if it’s a good idea at all) to go through the biting and protection levels, but focus on obedience training.

So my question is does this sound like a real plan on controlling DA or it’s more wishful thinking and living in a fairy land?
What advice would you give me?
