A:

Two puppies are sometimes more demanding than one, but it all depends on how they are managed and housed.

I would dissuade anyone with limited knowledge of puppy-rearing to have two, but more experienced owners should be quite able to rear two at once with no detrimental effects to home or puppies.

They will be company for one another, and a playmate when young is not a bad thing. As long as you have the time to devote to each one separately when the time comes for formal training, all should be well.

As they are coming from different places, be aware that a thorough health check by your vet would be sensible. The two may become inseparable if continually housed together, so make sure each one has plenty of quality time spent separately with you as their pack leader.
