Monte is a big, tall guy--a gentle giant. He is a quality dog and wonderful company: a true people's dog. He gets along with all humans and loves to be near you on the couch. Monte is a senior fella, so like senior humans, he has the beginnings of age-related issues. Since he has aching hips, he doesn't like his back end rubbed and needs a gentle touch. He needs someone understanding that will put the time in to understand his needs and love him. He is better with young adults and up. He is not recommended for young children, as they may grab him and be rough with his sensitive areas. He also has very strong front legs, and tends to pulls on the leash. However, he is learning better leash manners for his new forever home!
Monte knows some basic commands, and we are working on the word “stay" with hand signals. He wants to please his humans and has a lot of love to give.
Monte is a talker and has a beautiful voice.. He likes to let you know when the phone rings or someone is at the door in his beautiful baritone. Do you like to sing to music? Well he does, too, and enjoys singing along with you to the music. Monte is potty trained and is now used to the doggie door. He will also go stand at the door and let you know he needs to go out. Monte is happy to go to his crate at night to sleep. He doesn't mind his crate as long as it's not all day (at night, he's in there for 8 hours).
As a people's dog, he loves being around his humans and other humans. While he gets along well with his canine foster brother, he is more interested in playing with his human family. When Monte looks at you with his big warm eyes, he lets you know what he is feeling or needing. He looks forward to finding a forever home where he can love and be loved in return.
