Monty would love acreage or an active outdoor family. He is a great jogging buddy too !! Monty will pull a 'sad face' if he doesn't get large doses of affection and attention. He needs to be involved with family activities. After a good walk or run he will snuggle down and nap quietly.
Monty should be ok for full time workers (9am - 5pm) as long as he has a friendly dog for company.
