I think it would depend on the puppy you chose. You would need to get a female and one that was very submissive. I think he wouldn't see her as a threat and he would be fine. But I wouldn't get another male and I wouldn't get the alpha pup in the litter.
There might be an adjustment period, but I've heard of very few dogs that had to be the only dog in the house because of temperament. Most dogs love having a companion their own size/breed.
