I am Groot!  Welcome this sweet boy to CSBR!  Groot was returned to a shelter after his adopter’s resident dog attacked him several times.  When the shelter called us we knew we had to help!  When Groot arrived, we immediately noticed that there was something going on with his rear legs – we had some X-rays done, which revealed that he has severe hip dysplasia in both legs.  We have done a total hip replacement for Groot on one side.  He currently does not need his other leg done, but may in the future.

Groot’s ideal home would be a single level home, or at least one where he does not have to go up and down stairs.  He has some fear reactivity issues and needs to either be the only dog in the home or in a home with smaller dogs.  He loves people, cats, and belly rubs.  He also loves kids, but due to his size and his energy would do best in a home with older or no kids.
