Montana (aka Monty) is a resilient German Shepherd puppy with a heart as big as the Montana skies!  Montana was rescued from a flea market alongside his siblings, where they were cruelly abandoned and left to starve as younger puppies.  All were adopted, but unforeseen, sad circumstances brought Montana back to New Hope, and he’s once again on his journey to find a forever home. His original adopter says he's a truly fantastic dog, and she can't sing his praises enough.
One of Montana's most endearing qualities is his boundless enthusiasm for life. Every morning, he's the first to greet you with a wagging tail and a heart full of love. When you return home from work, you can expect an equally heartwarming reception. Montana is a pup who adores affection, cherishing every hug and display of love he receives.
Monty is growing up into an absolute stunner.  Calm, regal, obedient, friendly, eager to learn, and please. He will keep up on the most challenging of hikes but is equally content relaxing on his bed or in his crate if that's what his humans need him to do.
Montana is not only a charmer but also quite the smarty-paws. He's incredibly food-motivated and already knows commands, including sit, down, stay, come, and kennel. Monty thrives with daily structured walks and trick training and thirsts for human connection. He loves mental exercises, enjoys playing with other dogs, and is unfazed by cats.
His ideal family will be committed to providing him with a well-rounded exercise routine, including long walks, hikes, agility, and engaging games.
While Monty is an extremely well-mannered, laid-back pup, he will not be satisfied with just "running around in a backyard" - structured human interaction will be key to keeping this dog at his absolute best. Shepherds, known for their strong human connections, may become depressed or destructive without it.
Monty is affectionate and playful, but his true joy comes from filling a purpose for his human, even if that means just sitting quietly by your side. Monty is adaptable and excels in various environments, making him a great companion for outings to parks, restaurants, and stores.
Currently fostered with 5 other dogs, Monty is in a home environment with a trainer foster mom. If you're ready for a loving, intelligent, and adaptable family dog, Monty might be the perfect addition to your home.

Note about the breed: The indicated breed is our best estimate based on visual characteristics, but without a DNA test, we cannot guarantee its accuracy. However, mixed-breed dogs, lovingly known as mutts, encompass a wonderful variety of traits and are often some of the most cherished and lovable companions.
