My question would be, if you know her to be dog aggressive, why are you taking the risk of trying to find her a companion canine?
You have a small child. If you are not worried for your own safety, perhaps you should seriously ponder the child's. If your Pyr's job at the moment is primary guardian, and she has demonstrated an unwillingness to share, I would take her word for it.
Personally, I would stick with the one dog. Finding her a companion she will tolerate, not a good bet.

Never have two dogs of the same sex in the household especially when one is a Pyr. You cannot force dogs to like each other.

Any breed will get along. Just introduce them properly. That is, outside on neutral territory. Keep them separate until there is a playbow from your girl.

Your Pyr is dog reactive. She probably wasn't socialized properly as a pup with other dogs and/or she was attacked by other dogs.

As for alpha, please read these articles:

Make sure you go to a reputable breeder for whatever breeder on which you decide.

That is, the dogs are registered with a recognized kennel club. Moms are only bred twice maybe three times in their lifetimes. You will see the mom with her pups in the house (they are not kept outside). You will be thoroughly interviewed by the breeder. The breeder will ensure your dog is spayed/neutered at the correct age by following up with you. They will follow up with you for the first while to ensure all is well. They are there for you at any time should you need advice.

Pups are never available the next day. Pups are only weaned from their moms at 8-weeks old at the earliest.

You will also sign a contract with the breeder.

Anyone else is a backyard breeder or they are from a puppy mill who breed dogs at the expense of the dogs. Once the dog is no longer productive, it's thrown out back and shot. This isn't drama but true.

The shelters are already full of unwanted dogs who are regularly euthanized because there is no space left. You'll also find puppies in need of homes.

Best of luck in your search.

How could I forget. She doesn't want to share her space with another dog so you will always have problems.

The other commentor is correct. Do not get another dog for safety sakes.

She does not want another dog in her space.
