So I live with my sister in an apartment (that allows dogs) and she has a yellow lab who is very energetic and friendly. Her dog gets along with pretty much all other dogs, but doesn't like small dogs as much. She likes to play with other dogs and get rowdy. If a dog growls or snaps at her, she will fight back, she always likes to have the last word in those types of situations.
So I want to get my own dog, probably a medium sized lab mix of some sort and my sister is freaking out that I need to find a "back up plan" in case the dogs aren't able to live together. I think she is just trying to come up with reasons for me not to get one... Do you think that I would be able to find a dog that would make a good buddy for her dog? Or is it a crazy idea to want another one?

Good advice! I think your sis need to look into some obedience for her own dog. I do think you need to be prepared in case the dogs don't get along. Are you willing to keep them separated all the time?
