Puppies do very well if there's two so they can play with each other rather than completely depending on you for entertainment, but it is extra work involved in raising two. Twice the housebreaking fun and if one doesn't sleep through the night it will probably wake the other to play and then you'll never sleep :P

Definately go for the dog, not the breed. These ARE traits with individual dogs. I've had alsations that are terrific pets, but their personalities were totally different notwithstanding that my dog training and general enjoyment of the dogs was the same. You really should go the 'shelter route' - you can get superb pets there and train them well, house them, love them . . and you'll have a great pet.

Two puppies at the same time is a mistake, to be frank with you. They become attached to each other instead of you and learn bad habits from each other far easier than good ones. If you got an adult dog, it would be great to teach the puppy boundaries and learn good habits from, but if you're set on a puppy, be prepared for a lot of hard work if you get them both at the same time.

As for the rescue route re: not knowing backgrounds or lines...it's a chance, sure, but if you just want a family dog, why does it matter?
