Exactly as you describe, only she does suffer separation anxiety from her ”person”. I travel for work and she is a registered medical alert service dog. Travels with me She trained so quick and easy!! She seems to know people's intentions and alerts me if they mean me harm. She does not bark when working. We communicate through eye contact and she can answer yes or no or ”I don't know” questions. People stop us all the time in the airport and ask if they can take her picture! She is so interesting looking! And didn't say adorable??? She isbabsolutelybthe most wonderful dog I have ever raised.
