Disney announced a new Live-Action remake of their 1955 classic, Lady and the Tramp! Disney is hitting us right in the feels by casting a shelter dog in the lead role.
Monte, a 2-year-old terrier mix, was picked by Hollywood animal trainers looking to cast the role of “Tramp,” the street dog who falls in love with “Lady,” the pedigree pup.
Celebrity dog in our midst! Monte was adopted last year from HALO & originally came from Las Cruces, NM. Monte will be starring as “Tramp” in the new live action Disney movie according to this @People Exclusive https://t.co/d1LgLx9R0H #HALO25yrs #HelpingAnimalsLiveOn pic.twitter.com/u6kaBhgkJM

The Arizona shelter is particularly proud of Monte’s new gig because it is an opportunity to spread awareness for shelter animals and it shows how far they can actually go.
