Yin or Yang? Which is going to be the easiest transition for my Dauschund, Millie? Answered

I have a miniature Dauschund hound, Miss Millie, who is 3 years old. This is only my second ever dog, so bare with me please. Like any other wiener dog, she has personality up the wahzoo. Never have I nor my husband ever heard such a vocal canine. she's got spunk! But then I digress, sorry about that. Anywhoos, we run our business here at our house, actually out in the garage and basement. Millie will have nothing to do with either structure /room, so she ends up sleeping a lot inside the house. The last thing we want is for her health or well being to suffer, so alas....my question : When bringing another dog around an established territory of another (especially a Dauschund! Lol) Will the relationship develop better with a female pup or should we become looking for a stud puppy? Any help would be appreciated. My husband wants another girl, but I think it will make things harder for everyone involved. Please just confirm my answer, LOL, and I can be on my merry way. But seriously ,HELP!!

If they get along then does not matter.
If they don't then the sex is of no concern either.
Two girls are usually fine and establish a ranking within two or three days.
With a male it can be a bit tricky if the male wants to be dominant - keep in mind Milie is the boss right now.
It might help a lot to take Millie for a date.
You will see clearly if she bonds with a friend and then just take home who she likes most ;)
