Groves was picked up as a stray by a concerned citizen and turned into the shelter on October 1st, 2016 in poor condition. At 75 pounds he is underweight. He has signs of neglect and is heart worm positive. He was pulled from the shelter and moved to a foster home on October 15th.
Groves is calm and relaxed and seems happy just laying on his bed. He has already mastered the doggy door and is housebroken! He is expected to be ready for adoption December 10th.
Groves is a sweet senior who exudes warmth, love, and patience. Although his body isn't as limber as it once was, he still has joyful moments where he tries to jump and play. His tail almost never stops wagging and his smile will light up a room. Groves is happy from the moment his eyes open until he goes to bed. We may never know about his past but it's clear that he loves people and other dogs and seeks out affection and company. Groves would be a wonderful companion to sit on the porch, watch television with and take for short walks. Due to his age and size he would do best with elevated food and water bowls and an elevated bed.
Groves is a slow eater and prefers wet food. He may need to be monitored to be sure he eats enough. He does not like to be let outside alone yet but this may change as he builds confidence.
