August 3, 2012

Monte is a returning RAGOM dog. He came into RAGOM in 2007 as a stray and was heartworm positive at that time. He went through the heartworm treatment and is now a healthy, happy boy. He is approximately 7 years old. We aren't sure what he is mixed with but he weighs 47 pounds and is 21 inches high. Monte is neutered and up to date on all vaccinations.

Monte does have one challenge and that is he marks in the house. Unfortunately nothing has worked to get rid of this behavior. Monte has to wear a belly band at all times in the house so he will need a family that will be consistent with using it. Aside from that, Monte behaves very well. He doesn't chew, get into garbage, counter surf, or any other bad behavior. He is good with other dogs and also cats. He is not a dog that wants to fetch or play much with other dogs. Monte comes when called, knows sit and down, takes treats very gently, loves to go on walks and is perfect walking on a leash. He also loves, loves, loves car rides.

It was quite apparent when Monte came into RAGOM that he was very abused at some point in his life. He would duck when a hand would come out to pet him and if you tried to step over him when he was laying down he would quickly jump out of the way. He has gotten much better with being petted and also with people moving around him but he is still watchful with any quick movements. He has never attempted to bite. Because of his abuse, Monte would do best in a home without small children as the noise and high activity would probably be very stressful for him.

Monte is a well behaved dog aside from the marking issue. He would love to have someone that can provide him with a quieter home, take him on walks and have him wear his belly band. He loves his people and is a velcro dog once he learns to trust you. Please contact your placement advisor if you would like to meet Monte.

Since we have fostered Monte for quite some time, we have decided to adopt him. He is getting up there in years, and we would like him to live out his days here with us. Monte is a very happy boy. He loves the short walks we take every day, laying out in the yard watching the birds and squirrels, and his nice, warm coat and soft bed to lay on when the winter chill sets in. Monte is already home.

Monte was originally found as a stray. RAGOM took him in and provided heartworm treatment for him. Without that, he wouldn't be here. He went from being a stray to a dog with a home where he can be safe, have food to eat, and receive lots of love. To everyone who supports RAGOM in whatever way they can, here is a great, big "Thank You"! Without you, this organization couldn't do what they do best - saving these beautiful animals one dog at a time.

Hi RAGOM fans. Monte here. I have been just hanging out with Foster Mom and my fur sister Gabby. Foster Mom has been recuperating from two hip replacement surgeries so things have been slow for awhile.

We have been taking longer walks recently and enjoying this gorgeous weather. I got a little chubby over the winter but I have lost a few pounds so my harness isn't quite so tight. One can only suck the chest in so far. Sometimes we go to the park and I can run and run. So many things to smell and check out. I do kinda poop out with all that activity so when we get home I dash for the water dish and then go straight to my nice comfy dog bed. Feels so good to snuggle in and take a good nap!

I sent in a pic of Gabby and me sharing the dog bed when we each had a bone. I was actually there first, but since it is Gabby's bed I guess she decided to squeeze in with me anyway. That's OK. We get along really well and I was too busy chewing on that bone to notice her much.

One thing that has changed a bit is that I am starting to lose my hearing. While I usually come immediately when I hear my name, if I get a little ways away I can't really hear Foster Mom calling me. I am just going along smelling stuff when I hear some clapping, look up and see Foster Mom waving at me. She isn't real good at hand signals yet, but I get the idea. I go running to see what the heck she wants. Since I can't hear as good as I used to, I really need a fence to keep me in cuz I don't want to get out in the road. I won't hear those darn big cars when they are coming my way.

I had my check up in June and I am in pretty good shape for being around 10 years old. I need to go back and get on that scale, though, to show all those nice vet people I have lost a few more pounds. They will be happy about that!

For the most part, I just love spending the day with my people and taking it easy. I really do like having a fur sister to hang out with too. Well, I need to sign off for now. I have a big antler to go chew on for my bedtime snack. They are my favorite.
