Please contact Elizabeth (pudgepaws@hotmail.com) for more information about this pet. Adoption Application link: http://crest-care.net/forms.htm Crest-Care would like to introduce you to Monty, a two year old Mexican Hairless and/or possibly a Mexican Hairless/Crestie mix. He is a very happy go-lucky dog, who is very good natured and enjoys life. He loves his stuffed toys and likes to play with other dogs and it is our hope that he will find his “forever” home where there is one other dog for him to play with in a fully fenced backyard. Monty was in a very loving home, however, his owner developed Alzheimer’s and could no longer care for him. Prior to his arrival with this family, Monty was kept in a small cage for the first six months of his life, and every so often he will howl when stressed. When at home, he knew how to push open the back door to go outside, but couldn’t quite figure out how to get back in and would howl for someone to come and let him in. Monty learned how to use this method of howling as a mean of getting food from his owner wherein she was feeding him almost 99% of her own food. Monty being a quick learner, soon realized that if he howled, he would get rewarded with food which seemed like a pretty good deal to him. Some new house rules and positive reinforcement have helped to “curb” this bad habit for the most part. He has a very healthy appetite and needs to be monitored as he will “horn” into other food bowls in the home environment if not watched. He is currently 20 lbs. and is a very healthy boy overall, however, he does suffer with “dry eye” which necessitates having ointment placed in his eyes in the morning and drops in his eyes twice a day for the rest of his life. He also has one ear (right ear) where the ear canal never formed, however, this does not interfere with his daily functioning. When it is bedtime, if he is not covered up with a blanket, he likes to go under the covers and sleep next to his caregiver. Monty is a real lover boy and loves to cuddle in your lap. He has been to obedience training where he learned the basics like walking on a lead, sit, stay, come, stop and taking a treat when sitting on command. Monty is a very special boy with a quality that really grows on you. He is very trainable and would make an excellent agility dog as he has great speed and dexterity. If you think Monty might be the perfect boy for your family and you feel you can provide a stable loving environment, please contact his foster Mom at pudgepaws@hotmail.com Website: www.crest-care.net
