Not something I would try. They may get along for a while but will likely end in tears
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

I've had both together and they were best buddies, they would sleep next to each other all the time. Dog faces are very timid. The only thing you need to worry about is when you feed them, hold a piece of shrimp, 1 in both hands and feed them simultaneously. If you don't do this they can bite each others mouths when going for the same piece of shrimp.

I have heard of this combo ending very badly.
