Breed: Boston Terrier x Dauchund

Weight: 16 lbs

Age: 10 months

Personality: Ah, Groot. He touches our hearts. Groot is the sweetest and it's surely hard to turn away from those big, loving eyes. He is quiet, well-behaved, and friendly. He enjoys sleeping in the bed and cuddling with his humans during the night and in the morning. He likes going on walks, and he always gets all the compliments when he is out. But Groot's favorite time of day is meal time! Groot gets so happy when he meets another dog; we hope he finds a home where he will have another furry companion.
