Monti is available for a pet home adoption, however, he will do best in a home where his people are dedicated to doing things with him and working with him. He LOVES to be active!
Hello! Let me introduce myself- My name is Monti, I am a purebred black lab and I’m almost two! I was selected to be trained as a service dog by Pawsible Angels, but, unfortunately, my family decided that I wasn’t the best fit for them. However, I am continuing training with my foster before I go back to the training center in Findlay, Ohio. I am extremely obedient and loyal, almost to a fault. I will not touch my food unless I am told to sit and wait for it. I know my basic commands such as: Sit, wait, lay down, stand, to urinate on a cue, to kennel up and to go to the house on a cue. I walk well on leash, and I also have a few tasks: I provide Deep Pressure Therapy and am learning behavior interruptions. Although I have several qualifications, I can be standoffish with new people and may bark. This is something that I am currently working on and will need to be continually worked with, I also am working on greeting and learning to play respectfully with other dogs. Don’t let my standoffish ways fool you!! Once I trust you, you’re my best friend and will do anything to make you happy. Being almost two, I am still extremely active. I love to swim and also have been taught to dock dive! I love long walks and hiking. I also have a passion for fetch! I also LOVE to watch TV!! I’d do best in a house with a smaller family that have dog experience or in a home with an experienced dog handler. I would also like to be put into a working home, whether it by dock diving, hunting or other sports, or to continue my career as a service dog! I love to run and play, so an active home is a must!! I get along with calmer dogs, but am still learning how to be respectful towards dogs that don’t want to play with me… I am still a puppy!! I also need a home with a lot of structure and well set rules as I aim to please and really dislike doing something that I could get in trouble for. I would like a fenced in yard, but have been trained to be on a tie out so long as you’re not leaving me unattended for long periods of time. I have never had interaction with cats, but based off of my activity level and my desire to play; I’d probably do best without cats. I would love to get a family that has a lot of love to give and some patience for me to come out of my shell!
