What an amazingly interesting dog! He loves to play ball, is wonderful in the house (housebroken and calm) and even though his foster mom doesn't allow him to lay on the couch or bed Rook obeys (but we're sure he would love it). He doesn't have separation anxiety and does wonderful in his crate. Rook is easy to put in the crate and he settles in immediately. Where he's nice and calm in the house he also loves his long walks. The best of both worlds! A dog that can settle when he's inside but can play/walk with the best of them when he's outside! Where Rook will need help from you is when he's around young children, animals and moving objects (cars, bikes, etc). He would love nothing more than to get in a good chase and a nip if possible. He's not dog park material but would love to be taken to a large field on a long line and chase the ball. Rook is one smart, eager to please, loving his owner dog.
