CountryJewel that's a good question. One trait that has been in my rotties is they are or were aloof. They are so different though. Moose is a TV watcher. So much so that we have to put him in the crate in the living room if we are watching a program with animals. If he sees any animal and it is calm he just looks intently but if they are fighting he starts barking and jumping in his crate so we change the channel. Nikki doesn't pay any attention to the TV.
