It's Monty Pit Bull's Barking Circus! Okay, maybe it's not exactly a circus but our man Monty (A39530058) is certainly a one man comedy troupe!
Meet Monty, a five year old Terrier Mix who originally came to the shelter as a stray and is now searching for every shelter dog's Holy Grail- the perfect forever family. But like any good dog, Monty always looks on the bright side of life and isn't letting anything get him down!
Monty's a funny duck- and he also loves to play with ducks....stuffed squeaky ducks that is! Yes, toys are numero uno on Monty's list of favorite things, and he will happily entertain himself for hours just tossing a toy around and chasing them down. To make your future shopping stress free, here is a sampling of Monty's current best loved toys- Lambchop, a stuffed monkey, a duck that actually quacks, and rope toys of any size or color combination.
Monty's a high energy guy with limited stamina, if that makes sense. He requires daily exercise to stay happy and well behaved, and is currently a seasoned member of the shelter's Running Team, who reports him to be a steady, even runner. However once Monty gets that initial burst out of his system, it's couch potato time- so you really get the best of both worlds with him!
Monty may be living the life of Brian at the shelter, but he's also hard at work learning how to be the best dog he can be. Currently trying to master loose leash walking (a work in progress), Monty already knows several basic behavior cues and is very motivated to learn by tasty high value treats like pepperoni, turkey and cheese. And since he has more personality and love to give than a million dogs or cats combined, he would prefer to be your one and only pet!
Think you can help Monty discover the meaning of life? If so, please head down to the shelter today or contact his Pen Pals, Sheri and Pattie, at and!
