MONROE Monroe is somewhere between 6-7 years of age. His owner dumped him at a shelter out in the mountains and left no information on this wonderful fellow. CCDAL has attempted to gather information on Monroe through the vets in the area where he was dumped, but he was not on their radar screens. Because of this Monroe has been given a thorough physical exam and has an excellent record of health. Monroe is neutered, heartworm negative, lyme disease negative, and UTD on all shots. He has recently received a Lyme vaccine to prevent that disease, and he is on heartworm preventative.

Monroe is very much a gentle teddy bear. He has beautiful markings and big soft brown eyes that express his love and tender nature. We named him Monroe after one of our early Virginia Presidents because Monroe is a “man of the people!” He has tremendous canine diplomacy skills in that he gets along with all other dogs and cats, even if they are strangers. When it comes to people, Monroe is the perfect dog for small children and for folks that have very nice homes – this boy is not destructive, is house-trained, crate-trained, and even picks up his own toys rather than leaving them around!

Monroe is very intelligent – he knows some basic obedience and seeks to please. He is easy on a lead – and takes his walking cues from whomever handles him. This boy is a joy at the vet hospital. He immediately will get on the levitating scale and then sit or lie down – the perfect patient! He likes to kiss the doctor while having his exam.

Monroe is currently being boarded (due to lack of foster homes) and the kennel staff brag on him all the time. Monroe is not simply a Dal that has potential – this gentleman has the maturity, loyalty, and beauty we all have come to love in this breed. Whoever is so blessed to choose Monroe will find their life truly enriched by his companionship.
