About Monty:

Monty is a medium-sized, male huntaway-handy-dog-x, aged 4 years old.


Monty is a Huntaway Handy dog cross. He comes from a working dog family, but hasn’t been on the farm since 9 weeks old. He has been our family dog for the last 3 and a half years, walking on the lead and enjoying runs at the local dog park. He is all black with a decent bark when excited. He is well socialised spending time at kennels, dog parks and dog training as a puppy. Unfortunately our plans to upsize our property has not happened and we’ve done our best to give Monty as much space and run time as possible, I am not back at work full time with a toddler and teenager I am not finding enough time to give him what he needs. Monty has become very protective of my toddler and often growls at the teenager when she gets close – this frightens her a lot. He is otherwise good with children.

A bit about Monty’s personality:

Monty is a very affectionate dog. He loves snuggling up at your feet at night, and often thinks of himself as a lap dog and loves cuddles. Monty has a never ending supply of energy, he can run all day long and still have energy to chase a bird. He needs space to run and loves a good game of fetch.
