Other Info: Jack was surrendered to CBRRR by a shelter that thought he was too "aloof" for their adoption floor. Although we weren't told why Jack's original owner turned him over to the shelter, everything the shelter was telling us sounded like Jack was simply a typical young Chesapeake. After almost a week in foster care, we have determined the following: He hasn't got a mean bone in his body. He goes in and out just fine -- runs out to the park to play and comes back to the gate and runs to his kennel. Although we were told that he was an "outside only" dog, he has never made a mess in his kennel so we're not so sure that he isn't house broken. He does NOT know sit, shake or any other commands, but does come when called. And last, but not least, Jack loves to give kisses!
