A puppy named Monty was born with a bad brain condition called hydrocephalus, which means he has excessive water in his brain. The only treatment is to put in a shunt, but because of the severity of his condition, Monty wasn’t a candidate for one.
Thankfully, this couple decided to take him in and see what they could do on their own for the pup. At the very least, they would make every single day the most special it could possibly be. Their job was to give Monty the most love for whatever time he may have left.
The odds were against them, but they were ready to fight for his life. Monty was given a six-month life expectancy, but his new family was willing to put in the work. They would work with him multiple times a day doing reiki and crystal therapy, and even some sound therapy. He 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 hard work was starting 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! They have opposite personalities, but their daily interactions have led to tremendous development in Monty.
Monty is approaching his one year anniversary with his family meaning he has already doubled his life expectancy. His mom and dad can’t believe how far he’s come functioning mostly like a normal dog and running around playing in the backyard!
Vets are calling 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 truly shows that love is more powerful than anything else in the universe.
