Like Monty Hall, the famous TV host of "Let's Make a Deal," this Monty also wanted to make a deal -- a deal to get out of the shelter. A two-year-old Boxer mix, Monty arrived as a stray at the Sampson County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on September 9th. With his easygoing personality and his friendly manners, Monty won over the hearts of the shelter staff and became one of their favorites. But despite this, Monty lingered at the shelter for many months. Testing heartworm positive limited his chances of getting rescued or adopted.
