We have had a rescue dog with serious separation anxiety. Just be prepared for a lot of work. Take the dog home when you have at least a week off work-or someone else to take your place when you can't be there. Research on how to crate train properly, but she may never go in a crate, ours would tear herself apart trying to get out. But the small space seems to help reassure a lot of dogs. So try really hard to make this a positive place for her. You may need doggy daycare. Definitely obedience classes. Find a good vet that will give you techniques for dealing with separation anxiety like leaving music on, changing up your routine so the dog doesn't get anxious to calming smells in your home. Good luck and be prepared to invest lots of time and energy.
