New Cherry Cheesecake Hibiscus attacked by squirrels

Just recieved and planted two bareroot cherry cheesecake hibiscus. They were noit potted more than 48 hours before I came home and found one uprooted. Both had been chewed. New growth was not evident at that time. They are now in my kitchen until that happens or until I can wrap them up with chicken wire. How long does it take for dormancy to break? How do I know if they are alive or not?

Have they started growing yet?

Also, squirrels don't like coffee grounds and or chili flakes. So if you sprinkle you're morning coffee grounds around any plants they like, it will stop them for whatever reason. But you have to keep it up in order for it to continue to work, especially after a rain.
