Channing Tatum adopted a new Dutch Shepherd puppy he named Rooklin

Channing Tatum has been making a few headlines over the last few weeks. First, he dressed up like a fairy for a super cute picture to promote his children’s book Sparkella. Last week, he posted about the road to recovery after an accident, showing off his ripped body. He’s directing and will star in the film Dog as an ex-Army Ranger traveling to a fellow ranger’s funeral with his dog.

It seems Tatum’s upcoming film has inspired him to adopt a pooch. Channing posted several photos of his new tortoiseshell-colored Dutch Shepherd puppy, Rooklin, “Rook” for short. Tatum joked that when he and Rook locked eyes, they imprinted on each other and he knew that he was meant to be his owner. Here is more on the story via People:

“This is the newest member of the Tatum tribe. Meet ‘Rook’ or ‘Rooklin’ 12 week old Dutch Shepard! He’s gonna be a goon,” Tatum wrote in the caption.

The Hail, Caesar! star went on to say that he wasn’t sure “when or if [he’d] be open to having another dog” after the death of his pup Lulu, whom she shared with ex Jenna Dewan, just under two years ago.

“But he sought me out and we met eyes and then some imprinting type s— happened,” Tatum joked. “Haha I just hope i can handle the little hood rat. Haha that’s also his nickname when he’s being a little s— ‘hoodie’ cause boi is he little savage sometimes.”

Rook is an absolute cutie. Those big mischievous eyes, waaaaa. I have been strongly considering adopting a lap pooch of some sort despite being more of a cat person. I hope to be traveling a lot next year and I need a pet that will easily travel as well as an emotional support animal. I hope Rook helps Channing heal over the loss of his other dog with ex Jenna, Lulu. Losing a pet is definitely difficult and sometimes traumatizing.

Anyways, I hope that Rooklin will be happy and I am sure he and Channing will be a handsome pair to say the least. In the mean time I am going to go watch kitten and puppy videos on Youtube so I can fantasize about getting myself a puppy. I mean what is better than adopting a new pet? Especially if you are ready. I need to be a fur mommy for real. Channing and Rooklin really didn’t help this strong desire to have my own pet. Damn them.

    so cute!! We just got a kitten which is my first cat. He’s so fun but I never knew that they are up all night. Him and the dog just run around, jump on the bed while I’m trying to sleep. All that aside, I do love having a cat, he has such a personality.

      Welcome to being a cat mommy! I had dogs my whole life but got my first cat 11 years ago, now I’m a crazy cat lady! They have the sweetest & funniest personalities. I’m madly in love with my little girl!

    Dutch shepherds are a lot, like Belgian malinois. My old college roommate had a treeing walker coonhound and a Dutch shepherd and that shepherd could cause some trouble. She was always into something. They are working dogs that need plenty of exercise to keep them out of trouble.

      This. I worry when I hear about people buying working dogs. A bored dog is a destructive dog.


    That kind of coat pattern is known as “brindle.” All my mom’s boxers have been brindle, they’re all adorable pups!

    That puppy is so so cute. He’s definitely a dog person and I know he was so sad about losing their dog Lulu. I’m excited about this movie!

    Rook is absolutely gorgeous and he looks like trouble.

    Get a pug. Ultimate lap dogs. There are many rescues where you can get young ones. You won’t regret it.

    I hope he’s prepared for that breed. They’re high maintenance.
