When a puppy named Monty was born with a bad brain condition called hydrocephalus, there was only one treatment: put in a shunt. However, because of the severity of his condition, Monty wasn’t a candidate for one.
Monty’s owner decided to take him in and see what they could do on their own for the pup. They thought at the very least, they would make every single day the most special it could possibly be. They wanted to give Monty the most love for however long he may have left.
The odds were against them, but they were ready to fight for Monty, who was given a six-month life expectancy. His new family worked with him multiple times a day doing reiki and crystal therapy, and even some sound therapy. Monty was mostly blind and could only walk in small circles, so they had to teach him how to walk up the three steps leading into the house.
The couple’s hard work was beginning to pay off and Monty was making some real progress when a new family member showed up in his life. Roo and Monty hit it off immediately and had an instant bond! Although they have opposite personalities, their daily interactions have led to the tremendous development in Monty.
Monty is approaching his one year anniversary and has already doubled his life expectancy. His mom and dad can’t believe how far he’s come! He acts like a normal dog and runs around playing in the backyard!
Vets called Monty a miracle dog, and he’s given so much joy to his parents in return for them giving him a second chance. His story shows that love is more powerful than anything else in the universe.
