Either way an adult Dogue de Bordeaux is far from the puppy you see advertised, they can out grow their new home quickly. Inexperienced handlers can soon have a problem which sadly ends up time and time again in rescue.
The same can be said for many large breeds and whilst each breed has its own traits and behavioural issues, a little research prior to taking on the commitment of any pet could save many shelters becoming so full.
Often the dogs develop behavioural issues or can become unruly if not given the time and attention they need. Thankfully the experience and knowledge at Monty’s allows the majority to be re-trained and re-homed.
We are fortunate to receive help from numerous companies, who offer of us items for our monthly online auctions, food, treats and toys for our rescue babies together with cleaning and running supplies for the kennels. Without this fantastic support base and dedication from our team we would not be able to help so many dogs in need.
We generate funding in a variety of ways. We have online auctions and raffles run by our volunteers and we also have sponsored events arranged and carried out by our volunteers. For further details of upcoming events please see our Events page, which can be found under the About section. Should you have ideas or suggestions to help us raise funds we are always happy to hear them, so please do get in touch!
Or better still , come visit us! This is how most of our regular volunteers became involved and all will tell you the world of dog rescue is very addictive. The feeling that you are helping and contributing to a better existence is like no other feeling you will experience. We have our sad moments as not everything goes to plan but mostly we are rewarded with love and gratitude and develop bonds with our dogs and their owners (both new and old) which often remain for life.
