3 dogs better than 2?

Do we want a third dog? Do things really become different with a third dog in the fold?

We currently have two dogs and have now been presented with an option for adopting a third from someone who can no longer keep him. All dogs are fairly small (under 20 lbs) and are well behaved, aside from dog#1 who has some leash aggression towards strange dogs (but not dogs within his own pack).
Please share any experiences you have with going from 2 dogs to 3, and whether you feel it's a net positive or net negative experience. (I seem to read some comments on forums that going to 3 was a mistake, since now the dogs act very "doggy" and will start acting like a pack...or that everything is now too much to handle.)
Also, we are a working couple, but someone is always at home, and we have no kids. We have a house and a yard.
