Monty has been described as one of the country’s “most ignored canines” at a rescue center in Edenbridge, England. Monty has spent the last seven of his eight years of his life at a rescue. Last Chance Animal Rescue personnel are baffled as to why Monty has yet to find his permanent home.
Monty was kept in a tiny cage during his first year of life. He was slumped over and had trust difficulties by the time he came at the rescue due of the neglect and abuse he had had as a child. Unfortunately, prospective adopters show little interest in Monty.
“Poor Monty has a bent back, which the doctors believe is the result of his prior owners confining him in a box that was too tiny for him for an extended length of time!” Because of this, he has trust difficulties and would benefit from someone who can show him that not everyone is nasty, according to his adoption advertisement.
Monty enjoys attention and hugs with the rescue crew, but in the past, he did not get along with the other animals. Instead, he barked and drew closer to them. He can now peacefully stroll by them without barking after being in the shelter.
“In reality, Monty only wants one loving owner; he doesn’t want to share and can become quite jealous, which can lead to violent behavior.” He does not get along with animals and will bark and tug at them. He must be muzzled in public settings. Unfortunately, he becomes so agitated that he strikes your legs while attempting to approach other dogs, therefore his next owner must be physically strong. Monty, on the other hand, can now walk peacefully with a dog in sight and not bark or attack your legs, but this will take time in his new home.”
Monty would thrive in a home without other pets and with someone who can help him with his training. He is an energetic puppy that enjoys running and chasing tennis balls, but he never returns them.
“We have had Monty with us for so long because he is not an easy dog, but we are confident there is someone out there who will appreciate him for what he is, a somewhat wounded rogue!” To summarize, we are searching for an adult-only, single-person household with no other pets, plenty of patience and love, a garden, and tennis balls! Lots of trips to spend time with him before adoption would be necessary, so someone close to us would be great (unless you enjoy long and frequent flights)! If you believe you have what it takes to be Monty’s “human,” please contact us; we’d love to hear from you.”
Please tell your friends, family, and social media connections about Monty’s story. We’ve found homes for dogs with far more difficult conditions – we believe Monty’s new family is out there somewhere and have been waiting for this wonderful canine.
