An Arizona rescue dog will make his film debut in Disney's live-action remake of "Lady and the Tramp." And he certainly looks the part.
The pup was sent from a municipal shelter in New Mexico to Phoenix's HALO Animal Rescue in April 2018. Monte was beloved among staffers for his good behavior and sloppy wet kisses, shelter CEO Heather Allen told KTVK.
Monte was scouted by a group of Hollywood animal trainers, she said, one of whom adopted the affable canine.
Despite his recent foray into film, Allen said Monte still enjoys a happy, normal life.
D23, Disney's official fan club, said the entire cast of rescue dogs found "forever homes" after filming ended.
