9 years 46 weeks
Doberman Pinscher

Montague (Monty) was born on Christmas Day, 2011.

Dumped in an animal sanctuary on 6th May 2012.

Adopted by Dawn and Andy on 19th May 2012.

Monty is a pedigree but his papers were destroyed by the practice, as is their policy, so we don't know which breeder he came from, but we do know he cost £950 and had his vet check and vaccinations.

We know very little about his previous life, other than he was taken to the shelter because he was being left for 11 hours a day while everyone went to work.  They couldn't cope with him and his behaviour and handed him in for adoption after 10 weeks.

Monty came to us at a shade under 5 months old with absolutely no training, discipline or manners whatsoever.

He's too old for puppy training so obedience training assessment is on 12.06.12 and training course to begin after that, if he's accepted.

Previous dogs:

Sacha - Cocker Spaniel

Ruby - German Shepherd

Sapphire - German Shepherd

Tara - German Shepherd

Jasmine - Rottweiler


Monty is our first male dog so, in addition to a new breed, we are also learning about little boys and their habits!
