Meet Groot

Groot is an adorable American Bulldog/Shepherd mix.  A cute brindle with white paws, and an irresistible white stripe down his nose. He is affectionate, playful and trusting.

What a sweetie! Groot gets along with other dogs.  He does well with children too.  This youngster can sleep through the night without having to go potty, and has quickly learned to come when called!  Groot loves to play and his favorite game is fetch.   His other favorite activity is cuddles!

This smart boy is getting accustomed to a leash and is very responsive while out on his walks.  He is building confidence with each venture outside!  He is well on his way to being completely housebroken. He sleeps through the night with no accidents and often gets it right during the day when his people are on top of things! Hey, he’s training his humans too! 😉  He goes into his crate happily and stays quietly.

Groot is being fostered in Philadelphia, PA.
