Rumor is a low prey drive dog who excels at bossing stock and keeping watch over his pack.  He is intensely protective of his family and will defend his stock.  He is powerful enough to keep a hog off the person with the feed bucket and gentle enough to catch and hold poultry with his paws when instructed.  If the chickens escape, he puts them back in.
He will alert to trespassing creatures, holding them cornered until instructed to dispatch them.  Rumor has little interest in hunting vermin and small pests, but will take care of them if he is instructed.  He is a moderately soft dog who takes criticism well and seeks to please.
He generally gets along with other dogs, although he doesn’t like other males.  He is tolerant of children, but a little more skeptical of strange adults.
