Facts about Groot

  • Breed: Dachshund
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Groot is a 2 year old male black and tan wire-haired dachshund with awesome expressive eyebrows. He is an owner surrender and so far, Groot seems to get along with everyone he meets, including dogs, kids and cats. He's young and has lots of energy, so he will need a home that has time to exercise and play with him. Groot does fine in a kennel and is working on his potty training. We think once he gets on a regular schedule, he will get the whole potty training thing down with very few problems. Check back for more updates as Groot settles into his foster home.
Adoption donation for Groot is $400 and goes toward the high cost of veterinary care for our rescue dogs.Wag N Train Terrier Rescue adopts only to people living in states neighboring Nebraska and requires the adopter to travel to Omaha, NE to pick up their newly adopted dog. We do not transport or fly our rescue dogs. A securely fenced yard is necessary to adopt one of our terriers. Please note, invisible or underground fencing is not considered secure or appropriate containment for terriers.Adoption applications can be found at

About Wag N Train Terrier Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Wag N Train Terrier Rescue was formed in April 2010 to provide tender loving care for terriers in need. We are a small, all-volunteer organization made up of uniquely talented individuals who all love dogs. Several of us are certified pet dog trainers and we hold weekly training sessions for the dogs in our foster care. In addition, we also teach dog training classes to the general public and offer a weekly small dog play group for supervised socialization opportunities.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We hold adoption events at Long Dog Fat Cat (across from Village Pointe Shopping Center and at Loveland Center) and at The Green Spot.Meetings by appointment can be arranged upon approval to adopt. Please see our events calendar on our website:

Our Adoption Process...

Our adoption process starts with a completed adoption application requiring three personal references, a vet reference and a mandatory home visit. Once approved to adopt, an adoption contract and adoption donation are required, as well as travel to the Omaha area to pick up your newly adopted dog. We require securely fenced yards for our terrier breeds and we do not consider invisible fencing safe or appropriate for terriers. Adoption applications can be found at
