Does the farm dog DO anything?

Professions
Wondering if the dog you can get on your farm actually does anything or if he's just for aesthetics.

Does he keep virmen away or anything of the sort?
It responds to emotes. That's a... That's kinda all I got. /pet it and stuff
It a dog, it does its own thing.

I invited Tina to be a farm hand since she seemed to have the hots for yoon. Does it make any difference?
Well certain people helping on your farm does different things. Like add a mailbox, for example.
Damn.

I was hoping it would actually defend the farm, ala Harvest Moon...
He sometimes swims in the pond and he will love you forever. Isn't that enough???

The harvest moon dog pulled its weight by keeping thieves away from your farm.

It'd be SO nice if he'd prevent virmen from showing up, at least.

No. They don't breed in captivity.

I actually lol'd at this.

Well played.
Is there any other pets or Npc's you can unlock for your farm ??
When you become best friends with Ella, she gives you her cat Luna to stay with you on your farm.
Nope. Neither do any of your best friends. They're lazy bums.

I really wish the best friends would modify your farm. Here, like:

Sho: Reduces the chance of Hawks. She hates those fliers.
Chee Chee: Boosts Windshear Cactus.
Jogu: Boosts bursting chance of the forecasted crop.
Gina: Increases Drop Rate of Rep Boosters (like Apple, Feather, Jade Cat.)

you get the idea... then you could only change people once a day to avoid abuse.

Otherwise, it's all just aesthetics.
I really wish all the critters and the people you can invite to be on your farm would do something useful. Like the dog could deal with the pests, rather than me having to fight 10-14 of them just to plant new seeds everyday.
the farm has a lot of potential...I could see a lot of great things in the future with it.
