A HOME FOR MONTY

This is Monty, a 2 1/2 year old cattle dog/husky mix who's looking for a forever home!
Monty is neutered and up to date on his vaccines. He is currently residing at the Albany Pet Hotel in Albany, Oregon. Monty used to be one of our regular daycare goers/boarders and when his family reached out to us about rehoming him we were more than happy to help. Monty is housebroken, crate trained, and knows his basic commands (sit, stay, lay down, shake, etc.).
Monty's ideal home would be a household of 1-2 people with no children and very low traffic. He needs a very patient and caring handler who can read dog body language well. He has some fear aggression issues that we are currently working with a behaviorist and veterinarian for. It will be important for his next home to continue his training and exercises. Monty does have a bite history from his previous two homes that we are more than happy to discuss further with potential adopters. For this reason, it's important that Monty does not go to a home with young children. We have not had any issues or incidents with Monty biting any of our staff members while he has been in our care but we like to be as transparent about his history as possible.
Monty does well with other dogs when introduced properly, however, he can be possessive of his food and toys around other dogs. He absolutely LOVES to play with his toys and people once he trusts them.
We think Monty would flourish on a farm or in a house with lots of property to roam and run. Previous experience with herding breeds is highly preferred but not a requirement.
We will require a meet-and-greet, home inspection, and two-week trial prior to adoption.
