Monty has been with us since October ‘19. He was one of our regular daycare dogs at our facility until his family could no longer care for him. Unfortunately, Monty does display some fear aggression behavior and can be very sensitive to fast movements and new people. For this reason, Monty will need a quiet home with low traffic, no children, no other animals, and someone who can continue to work with his insecurities. Monty does have a previous bite history, which we want to be extremely open and upfront about with any prospective adopter about. Fortunately, we have not had any bite-related issues with Monty since he has been in our care, and we don’t believe this will continue to be a problem with the right owner.
Because Monty is mixed with cattle dog, he does display some herding tendencies sometimes including being mouthy when excited and having a strong prey drive. For this reason, his perfect match will need to be someone who has previous herding dog experience or at least some knowledge of the breed.
Despite Monty’s flaws, he’s an incredibly adorable and smart man! He loves to play, although he’s not overly energetic. He enjoys hanging out with his people and loves being challenged with mentally stimulating games and toys. His adoption fee is waived, and we can provide transportation to his new home. We do require an initial meet-and-greet at our facility as well as a home inspection and two-week trial period prior to adoption. Monty will come with all of his belongings and vaccine records.
If you’re looking for a smart dog to keep you company, or an amazing farm/guard dog, consider sending us an inquiry through PetFinder. We would love to hear from you!
