About Monty

1 to 2 Years


Marvellous Monty can only be described as a beautiful gentle giant who has stolen all our hearts!! He loves to play with his toys and will throw them around to keep himself entertained which is hilarious to watch! He also doesn't realise his size and will squish into you for a big cuddle whenever he gets the chance! He loves a head massage and although he has shown to be a little unsure meeting some new people here, once he puts his brave boy pants on and says hi it doesn't take him long to be your pal! We know Monty's new family are going to be very lucky indeed to get to take him home with them!

Type of home needed

1-year-old Monty walks nicely on the lead most of the time but if he gets excited he can pull and can be strong at times. Monty can live with older teens in his new home and he would be best as the only pet in the home as he can get a bit OTT when playing with other dogs, but we think he would enjoy having regular play mates out and about who will be tolerant of his playstyle. Monty does get travel sick and has recently started hydrotherapy with us to help with his current medical concerns around his legs. These will be discussed further with successful applicants.

Thank you for your interest in rehoming a dog from our Basildon Rehoming Centre in Essex.

The first step to rehoming from us is to complete our online application form. We’ll review your application and if we think you could be a good match for the dog, we’ll give you a call to chat in more detail.

When reviewing applications, we're looking at how closely your lifestyle matches the needs of the dog. If we have lots of strong matches, then we'll start with the family that applied first.

We may arrange a virtual home check to find out more about you, your lifestyle, and the home you can offer. We may also make an appointment for you to come and meet a dog at the centre.

Start your online application now.

We aim to respond to all rehoming applications within five working days. If you have not heard from us within five working days, unfortunately you have been unsuccessful this time.
