About Groot

Groot came to HUA from a rescue group in Texas who had saved him from a terrible hoarding situation. He was scared to pieces, completely unsocialized and painfully shy. Groot’s main caregiver worked tirelessly with this poor little dog, and now Groot has shown us that he is quite the character. He loves adventures of every sort–car rides, visiting other buildings on the HUA campus, joining the humans for lunch in the sunporch, talking long walks in the meadows and greeting new visitors in the lobby.  He is still a little bit shy when he meets new people or is in a busy environment but he has made such amazing strides.  Groot loves toys and other dogs and he has finally learned how to play like a happy dog should.  We are confident that he will be a joy and a pleasure in his new home.

Becoming an HUA Buddy changes a life. For a monthly donation, you can befriend a dog or cat in need of some love and support until your fuzzy pal is adopted.
