Montrose - A Petfinder Happy Tail

Adopted Dog

Adopted from Country Kennel Bully Rescue, Akron, IN.

When I got Monty (who I affectionately call Monkey) from Indiana several years ago, it wasn't without issue. Monty had rotting teeth, bad skin, cataracts, and emotional scarring which had left him terrified of people, especially men. After years of rehabilitation, he is my best little friend, and travels with me everywhere I go. He's still very quiet, still has a mistrust of men, and only plays with me, but we have grown together in ways I never could have anticipated. Saving a rescue has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and like the bumper sticker says: "Who Rescued Who?"
