Other Info: He is learning crate training and sleeps in a crate nightly High energy,Velcro dog Loves tennis balls Looking for an active family and someone someone to teach him obedience He is a young rambunctious boy willing to learn Update 7/ From foster Mom Rupert appears to be, and acts, like about a year old Chesapeake. He is tall and gangley right now, and probably weighs about 60 lbs. His coat is coming in nicely after all the dead hair was removed, and he is starting to get the curly coat down his back, and while he has a really nice coat, reddish brown, I donít think he will have the real curly coat around the neck, like some do. He is in good health, clear eyes, no diarrhea, eats very well, about 6 cups a day to get some weight on him, as he was very thin when he came here. He is gaining weight well. He is also neutered. He appears to be a very bright young dog. He has not had much training, but knows to sit to have a leash put on him (with no command). He is learning the down stay, and after a 20 minute argument the first night, is much more accepting of it. He needs to be coaxed into a crate still, but will go in for food, as long as he isnít forced. Once he is in the crate, he settles down easily, and sleeps in a crate all night long. If left alone in a crate, he does whine at first, but then settles down. He does not walk at heel yet, but from what I can see of his other behavior, that will not be hard to teach. Rupert knows his name and comes when called, but I would not trust him loose yet. He has great eyesight and a great nose, is very inquisitive, and it appears that he has the brains to be field trained. He is a pretty tough dog, not easily cowed, but very forgiving, which some Chesapeakes are not ! He is almost house broken. I think it is a matter of not having been in a house rather than no training. He does go to the door to go out, but has accidents if you donít get him outside. Rupert is very friendly, young and exuberant, but will calm down around people when told to. He is fine with other dogs, no aggression, and plays very well with others. He also knows who to leave alone. He interacts with a 2 year old Golden and an 8 year old Chocolate Lab both males Ö leaves the Lab alone and plays well with the Golden. At first he was very restless in the house, but over the past couple of days, has quieted down, so now he plays with the ball for a while, then will lie down and go to sleep. He is not afraid of loud noises, or fireworks, will bark if someone comes to the door, but then will quiet. I think he would do well with a family, with or without children, and I can see him being a great companion. He is affectionate and loving, and very playful, and eager to please
