Dog of the Week: Groot

Julia D Dog of the Week

Groot is a 5-month-old puppy recently transplanted to Iowa from Texas. He came here with his littermate, Jeff. He is currently almost 30 lbs. Groot is just about the biggest sweetheart you will ever meet. He LOVES people, kids, and other dogs as long as they do not bark at him. He is too interested in cats, he thinks they need to be chased. Groot is good at walking on a leash, he knows “sit” and is mastering “lay down” and “come.” Groot is crate trained and potty trained, as long as he is taken outside regularly. He does prefer to sleep in your bed at night and does that like a champ! He loves to be active and have something to do when he is not napping. He is still a puppy, so he needs plenty of his own toys to chew on, balls to play with and daily exercise. He loves to run and play, so a fenced in yard is preferred. He can entertain himself well, but likes to check in with you and have you play with him too. He hopes to meet you soon!

Groot’s adoption fee is $300 which includes neuter surgery, being up to date on vaccinations, a microchip with lifetime registration, and a free obedience class.
