Amy, we have three Chinese Cresteds (love them!) one Staffordshire Bull Terrier and and three Dobermans. Two of the Dobermans belong to my daughter, but I care for them during the day so they are here.
I don't think it matters what sex is easier with the smaller dogs, it depends on the individual character of the Dobermans. Our males are generally easy going. But then, my female feels it her duty to ever protect and watch out for the Cresteds. If your females are not spayed, I would consider a female Dobe. I think it best if they grow up together, or you get a puppy. Your Cresteds and Frenchie will always be first in pecking order. With Dobermans you have to be careful of SSA (same sex aggression), but I have never seen that with my Cresteds, even with two whole males together and a bitch in season.
My daughters first Doberman, 10 yrs ago came into a house of Cresteds and a new one just the same age as he was. Both three months old they grew together and oh the trouble those two could brew.
Up camping or in the Mountains the Cresteds keep up with the big dogs, their energy limitless and prey drive strong so they worked together. I have some great pictures - somewhere.
