From the Foster:

Since picking Rover up, he has gone from a dog that was skittish to one that loves to be around his humans.  He walks well on a leash and can take walks of more than a mile, although he does not need them.  He enjoys meeting other dogs on our walks, so long as they are also friendly.  He has not had the opportunity to meet any cats yet.
He has not made a mistake in the house after the first 48 hours.  He decided to be a true 'couch potato' since that is where he stays most of the time.  He does not like being crated, which is fine with us.  We have left him alone in the house for several hours at a time, with no messes of any type to greet us upon our return.
The biggest problem so far, which we are still working on, is getting him to sleep at night.  Once it is 'lights out', he gets anxious for 15-20 minutes until he settles down to go to sleep.  The other quirk is that he is afraid to walk on our wood floors.  Carpets and tiles are fine for him, but wood floors scare him.
