My name is Monty!
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, a special needs pet, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, not good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Monty is looking for a very special home, with a very special owner. Monty was used for breeding, neglected, and then dumped once they were finished with him. Because of the neglect, he had to have several dental extractions, and the vet suspects a couple more will come out on their own in the future. The vets suspect he is between 9 and 13 years old.
Due to his age, our vet suggested that we simply provide Monty with a nice and quiet home where he can live out the rest of his life knowing love. He has urinary complications, which two veterinarians suspected were cancer after less-invasive methods to treat an infection were without success. Both doctors feel that it would be inhumane to put Monty through invasive and painful tests, especially with him being a senior who has only known neglect.
He does not appear to be in pain, and aside from sleeping a little longer than your average dog, he gets around just fine.
He can be timid at times with new people, but is usually fine. He likes both men and women, but shows hesitancy around teenagers. He did fine with two toddlers, but we found that if they run, he likes to chase them and tries to bite their feet; so Monty shouldn't go to a home with children.
Monty is terrified of cages, carriers, and crates. He cannot, under any circumstances, go to a home that would crate him with the exception of traveling where they are required for his safety and well being.
If you'd like to give Monty a place to live out his golden years -- *or year... (*the vet was unable to give a definite timeframe on how long he will live), please email Lori@theanimalpad.com
Thank you so much for considering the little man for your new family member.
