Exactly. But a lot of breeds naturally want human attention, just like the SBT.All dogs are beautiful in their own way. In regards to SBTs, they certainly do crave human attention. In my life, I have had a few dogs, the first being a Cattle Dog x Beagle who thought she was my mother and protector (Dad got her when I was 3 mths old), that old girl lived to just short of her 21st birthday (human years) and totally craved human interaction with her family! My next dog was a pure bred catttle dog who was a little silly and aloof, but when it came to birthing her puppies, she wouldn't unless she could lay across my legs between each pup! At the same time I had a Silky who loved attention on her terms. Next came the German Shepherd. Big tuff boy who wanted to be by my side at all times and after a while came Ralph (SBT), who was happy to be with either the cats or the German Shepherd or us, he didn't really care. But when the German Shepherd was ran over and killed, Ralph went to pieces and wanted to be with us all the time. He would see us off to work and greet us when we came home, no matter what time. As soon as the back door was open he was there making his little whimper noises so we would pay attention. He does silly things to make us laugh, licks us when he knows we are sad. Has roast dinner with us every fortnight! So when it comes to the best dog as far as I have experienced, it can be any breed of dog, it is the bond between you and your dog that makes the difference!
But I do love my SBT
