Usually getting a female with your established male is a very safe bet. I don't have problems with two males NORMALLY, but you can find exceptions. I don't recommend two females together in most situations... although there are plenty of people that successfully have multiple females in their household, when it DOESN'T work, it's a mess, since you usually have to place one, or someone is going to die. AND, it doesn't happen right away, it's when the pup turns two or so... However, I do still think you should get a pup that will fit with your older dog... is he very dominant? Or more on the pushover side? If your dog is dominant, get a pup that will be happy "on the bottom". If your dog is a pushover, get a middle to high social dog, not another one just like him.
