Meet Groot

Handsome, fluffy, a great personality, and as sweet as can be! What more could you ask for in a dog?!

Groot is on the calmer side. He does love playing with the other dogs but is also perfectly happy to just chill somewhere. He also loves coming on the couch and getting some lovings&cuddles!
-You can apply to adopt Groot using the link below. However, we highly recommend reading his ENTIRE bio to find out more info about him and see if his personality would be a good fit with your family first.

Below is what his foster family has to say about him.

"Groot is the most affectionate little guy! He likes to sleep right up next to you and snuggle most of the night. He absolutely loves his foster siblings but hasn’t been too fond of puppies, he does really well with adult dogs of any size! The couch is definitely his safe space, when he’s nervous or scared he runs straight there. He’ll also sometimes have his dinner on the couch haha! We’re not sure of Groot’s background but he is very timid when it comes to men. When my husband is sitting on the couch or bed, Groot is all over him asking for pets and giving kisses. However, when my husband is standing and approaches him, Groot will sometimes back away. He will also not come inside unless a woman is calling him back in. Then at night when we’re in bed, Groot is rubbing his face on my husband’s face and hugging him! He’s a little cautious but wants to love and be loved! Groot seems to rely on his foster siblings for comfort and because of that, he will need a home with another loving dog. He does great free-roaming so we stopped crating him, he’s shown zero signs of destruction and has been absolutely amazing! He’s a very lovable and affectionate boy who will be an amazing family member!"

Groot spent just under 3 months in the shelter. He just sat there waiting patiently for someone to adopt him and no one ever did. We have no idea why he sat in the shelter so long, but boy did people miss out on this guy! Groot is so incredibly sweet and is doing great in his foster home. After a trip to the vet, it was revealed that Groot was heart-worm positive. So, not only was he waiting 3 months for someone to break him out of doggie jail, but he was also sitting there heart-worm positive. ?

Groot is a 2-year-old male Border Collie mix. He currently weighs about 45lbs and won't be getting bigger than the 50lb range.

??To Groot's Future Family??
-----------------------------------------

? Groot is initially nervous when he first gets into the car. After a bit, he settles down and rides like a champ. Groot has been on a few walks, but he is not a fan of the leash. Our guess is he had no experience with it prior to coming to the rescue, but he is slowly learning. Groot has been out to a few public places and did well. He is nervous, though. He is also unsure and shy of strangers. He does behave well around people and doesn't jump on them.

? Groot has good house manners and can be trusted with free-roam of the house. At night, he likes sleeping in bed with his foster parents. Groot is potty and kennel trained. However, since he has good house manners his fosters have not needed to kennel him lately. Groot has not shown to be a big chewer in his foster home. He also is not a big barker unless there is cause for it.

?Groot is still undergoing heartworm treatment so that may be bogging him down a little. He may become more playful once he is finished with treatment, but we don't believe he will ever be an "active" dog. He is uninterested in playing fetch or in the water. He does enjoy playing with toys, especially bones.

?Given that he isn't a big fan of being out and about and isn't fully leash trained, Groot probably would not be a good candidate for apartment living.

?Groot is being fostered around other dogs and kids. He does great with other dogs, both for their companionship and as a way to get his energy out. Groot has been around kids as young as 4 and has done great with them!

?? Adopting Groot ??

Groot is finishing up his heart-worm treatment right now. As we mentioned above, there is the chance he may become slightly more playful but nothing drastic. He would do best with a family that doesn't have many people coming in and out. One that has another playful dog, and keeps to a pretty consistent routine. We don't know Groot's past but we do know that he is still learning to truly trust. He isn't a fan of a lot of change, so a family that doesn't have a lot going on would be best for him!

?Groot is currently undergoing heartworm treatment. He will be ready to go home around July 9th. His new family should be available to pick him up close to that date. ?

Groot is being fostered in Moore, OK. His new family needs to be able to pick him up(even if they are out of state). No commercial transports and no shipping. Just a fun road trip with him and his new family! ?

His adoption fee is $225. That includes DHLPP, Rabies, and Bordatella shots. He will be micro-chipped, heart-worm tested, have a fecal done, be de-wormed, be spayed/neutered, and will be current on heart-worm and flea/tick prevention. It also includes his heartworm treatment.
