Lola is a very hyperactive dog. She is very protective of me and my immediate family and has the guard dog aspect down pat. She loves to go for walks and knows where we are going when I grab her harness. She is a very lovable cuddly companion. The only issue we are having is that she has separation anxiety and has accidents in the house when left out. She hates her crate and is having a hard time with crate training. All in all she is a wonderful dog and I would absolutely consider this breed again.
