About Rocket & Groot

Rocket and Groot 

If you are a fan of  the Guardians of the Galaxy you recognize where their names came from. Our kids named them! Rocket and Groot are two beautiful, 2 year old female Dobermans.  Rocket is red/tan and Groot is black/tan.  They are both spayed and up to date on their vaccinations. They are house and crate trained. Rocket and Groot have been together since they were babies.

They came from the same breeder and have the same father so they are half siblings. They have been inseparable from the first day they came home. This is why they must stay together.  They like to care for one another by cleaning each other. They love to wrestle with each other. Their favorite game is when Rocket will hunt Groot. Groot knows she is coming but waits quietly.  Check out their video. Its so funny to watch. 

They love affection and only want to be loved.  They are such sweet girls and we love them dearly but we can’t always show them the patience that they need and deserve. They bark when people come to the house and need time to accept new people.  The best way to introduce someone is to have them walk them to the house themselves after they give then cheese. They love cheese, peanut butter, bacon and love to get ice every time they hear the ice dispenser. 

A quiet home without a lot of strangers coming and going will be best for the girls.  Also a home with a fenced yard to run around and play in is best because they are very barky towards other dogs on walks. They love each other and are happy playing with each other in their own yard. They also love to wrestle with our 15 and 12 year old kids and sleep in their rooms but of course it would take some time for them to to warm up to new kids.  An adult home would probably be best. Because they are so bonded, I want them to be together. They are 2 lovely dogs that only want to be loved.
