Why are you getting another dog, knowing that your dog isn't going to be comfortable or happy with that? Just curious..

To "fix" this problem is not easy and needs time and patience so I think getting another dog now is not a good idea.

It sounds like he needs more socialization. Can you tell us more about him (his backround and behavior)? The other dogs that run and growl at him are doing it in a playful way?

german sheperd but was only housed in abaut 1m - 1m cage witch
was sheared and did struggle with a fight for food with the german so
i thinks it just been one bad case whan he was little
and the dogs that run at him are on the street and just friek out
so i think he feels a bit insucure

I think you will get more answers if you post in the puppies and new additions section.
