UPDATE! - Thank you so much to everyone from the Corgi community from helping me with this decision. Upon your advice I was going to do a few play-dates and sleepovers to see if Dakota and the corgi in need of a home could get along...
As I was setting this up, I got a call from the lady who was looking to re-home the corgi. She told me that a family had come forward that had a home with older children and a male corgi, apparently this family lives on a farm up north.
This was obviously an even better place for this little girl to go than the home I was planning to offer her, and free of any potential female/female conflict.
SO, everything ended happily ever after... The Corgi girl whose overwhelmed owner was keeping her in a kennel for 10 hours a day is now romping happily on a farm up north, and my little princess Dakota is still a spoiled only child.... for the moment! :) I'm sure an addition to our family will come due time.
THANKS AGAIN TO EVERYONE FOR YOUR WONDERFUL THOUGHTS AND ADVICE!

We currently have our 12 month old female pembroke corgi Dakota, who we love more than anything.
I recently came across an 8 month old female pembroke in need of a home. The current owner is someone who didn't know what they were doing when they got a corgi puppy, the dog spends most of it's day in a crate and she hadn't been spayed or trained and the owner is just overwhelmed.
Heck,I didn't really know what I was doing when I got Dakota, but I was lucky enough to be working from home and she gets plenty of attention and took her training quickly.
So my first question for everyone is- Am I insane to be considering adding a 2nd female corgi who is only 4 months younger than Dakota? I've read lots of various accounts of females getting along perfectly, as well others talking about them trying to kill each other.
Then my 2nd question is whether the fact that corgi #2 isn't spayed yet at 8 months might make them more likely to fight? If she were to join our family, I'd want to get her spayed immediately... But then the poor thing is dealing with the trauma of a new home and surgery at the same time...
Alright folks, am I insane? ;)
