“Gentle Giant” is a great way to describe me! My name is Groot and I arrived as a stray in the tail end of December. I’m estimated to be an 8 year old Akita mix. I was adopted in mid-January, but returned in mid-February because I didn’t like to share my food or my people with the other dog in the home. Napping is my favorite pastime, but I also enjoy leisurely walks with my human friends. My hips aren’t what they used to be, but now that I am on some glucosamine supplements I am able to get up and around a bit more easily. I am a laid-back, sweet, gentle 97 pounds of fuzziness. I can “sit”, “lie down” and “shake” when asked, and I like to make friends with absolutely every person I meet. I would likely do well in a home with older kids who won’t be climbing all over me. I hear all the time from my DCHS staff friends that I am such a ‘handsome guy’ and a ‘good boy’… so please stop by and meet me today!
