    Just a quick post as I'm so proud how far little Monty has come. When I first got him he was so covered in fleas, his fur had been cut badly and was all matted and he was scared of everything!
    Now he is so happy, his fur is growing back, he wants to play with everyone and is just full of trouble, I love it! The only thing I can't lose yet is his fear of feet being lifted off the floor BUT we will get there!
    I honestly couldn't be prouder of him!

    Well done!!! I just cannot believe that someone could neglect such a tiny adorable dog. Well he fell into the right hands now. Kudos to you for rescuing him and giving him the love and care he needs to be his best self, even if that's naughty once in a while!!! :hugs

    Absolutely nothing makes your heart burst with pride more than knowing you saved a life and made a life worth living! Bless you for all you have done for Monty! You should be proud! It just goes to show what love can do! Bravo!

    Adopting a dog is such a commitment. These dogs know they have a second chance. In the end you never know who really rescued who.

    If this story does not touch your heart and soul, your dead!

    What a transformation! Brings tears to my eyes that someone could do that to such a sweet soul! Tears of joy now though that you rescued him!

    Monty looks like a different dog! You’ve done a wonderful job with him, and he’s a lucky boy to have found you!
