Monte, a 2-year-old terrier mix, was at HALO Animal Rescue in Phoenix with hundreds of other dogs.

Shelter workers noted that Monte was super friendly, loved to greet people and give kisses, and loved attention.

So, when animal trainers came scouting from Hollywood, Monte was a perfect fit to play the "Tramp".
