I maybe in a position to add to this thread some more in the quite near future for now all I'll say is that a 4 month old boy has come up for rehoming

Re: wirehaired vizsla puppy as a play mate/companion for our 19mths old vizsla boy

Hello again

Thank you all for your posts. Of course I am not expecting ready prescription for success and guarantees of behaviour.
I do appreciate sharing your stories, experiences with me and others.

Harrigab- that’s fabulous, I hope that all will work very well for you and your beautiful doggies.
Rbka- thanks a lot. I cannot tell you how many times I have looked at the photos of your amazing Nico and a new puppy  They are truly adorable, I get emotional each time I look at them! I hope we will get as lucky too 
Lyra- thank you so much for your response. It is so helpful and interesting to read about your experience.

My Brian is a softie, very well behaved, though very willful, extremely smart, funny, gentle and very social, and easy going.
Do you think he can get jealous of a little puppy?I don't want him to feel that he is now less important to me...! I love him so much, and will do everything so he feels as special to us as he is now. He gets lots and lots of love and attention 

Although Fergy and Max do not live in the same household, They play nearly every day, and have spent many weeks together when we dog sit Max.
They are not siblings, Max is about 4 mo. younger then Fergy. They never fight, or get rough with each other. They always play and invent their own games. Whether they find a stick, a plastic food container, pine cone, paper cup, bone, ball, etc. in this case, Fergy found a pair of small kids soccer
cleats, on the park bench...

Obviously I haven't had the same experience as you will but I've seen a few posts here regarding new puppies with an existing dog. I haven't seen jealousy as a problem but pups always require a lot of time and attention at first, as I'm sure you have experienced. They can also be quite wearing, not only to humans, but also adult dogs. Make sure Brian gets some space when he needs it. Some dogs will tell pups when they have had enough, some won't so you may have to intervene if the pup is getting to be too much.

I presume you have thought about how you are going to satisfy the exercise requirements of two very different needs. This would be a good opportunity to maintain some individual attention for Brian while everybody makes the transition to a two dog family.

You are clearly aware of the need to make sure Brian gets enough attention so I doubt you will have an issue.
