At first glance, it might appear that Monty is channeling his inner Eeyore. With those soulful puppy dog eyes and that prominent underbite, he has a way of pulling at our heartstrings. But don't be fooled! This fun-loving boy is all wiggles and wags when he's playing with toys or exploring the great outdoors.

Runners and hikers, take note! if you're looking for the perfect trail companion, Monty is your boy. He goes out on the trail on a regular basis with his Virtual Foster friend. Together, they run side-by-side for miles. Bikers, strollers, dogs, cranky swans and other distractions don't phase him in the slightest. He truly is a fabulous workout buddy!

So if you're looking for an athletic, sweet-natured, handsome boy, why not go the full Monty? If that face isn't enough to convince you to take him home immediately, we should also note that he has received rave reviews from his sleepover friend. He proved to be potty trained and a respectful houseguest. He's also an excellent snoozer and is content to lounge on the couch and keep you company for hours during Netflix marathons.

In addition to being a top-notch lounger and trail companion, Monty is also in the Total Obedience Program. The Total Obedience Program (TOP) is modeled after the AKC's Canine Good Citizen (CGC) test. As a TOP dog, Monty has a personalized training plan and works with a volunteer trainer several times a week to help him learn the skills to become the best dog he can be!

Monty is now TOP Dog Ready, which means he has already learned all the skills in his training plan, including sit and down, walking nicely on leash, sitting calmly when approached by strangers, calmly walking past another dog, staying in a sit or down until told "free," and coming when called. Monty has worked hard to become a wonderful pet and as a part of APA's Total Obedience Program you can work with APA staff to continue to build a training relationship with Monty after adoption and master all the TOP dog skills together. Check out a video on APA's CGC program, on which the TOP was based: https://vimeo.com/89434193

So what do you say? Want to come visit this sweet boy today? We have no doubt he will make his forever family very happy one day!
