We have a male 4 year old MALE FRENCH BULLDOG and we will be buying a STANDARD POODLE...QUESTION: WHICH WILL GET ALONG BETTER, A FEMALE POODLE PUP OR MALE POODLE. (STANDARD POODLE)
If I buy a female will the male get along BETTER with her?? OR if I buy a male poodle, will they fight for leader of the pack since they are both males? The FR Bulldog is 13 inch at the shoulder and the Poodle will grow to be about 25 inch at the shoulder.

it is usually better to keep opposite sexes as many breeds do not get along with the same sex. establishing who is the leader is not confined necessarily to same sex pairings. i would suggest you get a female
I would say it depends totally on your Frenchie's personality and what kind of breeder you're getting your Spoo from. If your Frenchie does find w/ all other dogs and you're buying your Spoo from a decent breeder, who cares about the proper Poodle temperment, you should be fine either way. Poodles tend to do fine w/ either sex, but there are exceptions.
We have Bostons and recently added a Frenchie to our home. We have 2 males inside and 4 females and it was a very easy transition to add her. We took everyone outside, on neutral ground and just let them all smell her and get to know one another. Since you only have 1 and are adding 1, it should be pretty easy.
Be careful when socializing because as you know, Frenchies have big, bug eyes that can be easily scratched or injured.
Congratulations on the new addition.
I would probably go with adding a female rather than a male.
