  2. Romance & Rowan

    Hello everyone – Monti here!  Have you heard the news? I’m taking some time off from The Jefferson so I can work on a new project! More to come on that later this month, but I’m super excited to launch this next phase of my presidential career - #Monti2020.

    In the meantime, I wanted to introduce you to my friend Rowan! Rowan currently lives with the good people at the Partnership for Animal Welfare, but he is looking for his forever home.

    About Rowan

    Rowan is a house trained three-year old, 37lb mix breed.. He was found tied outside of an abandoned house, underweight, with some pretty bad damage to his amazing ears.He had also tested positive for heartworms and had to go through a series of treatments, but I’m happy to report that today Rowan is happy, healthy, and ready to join a loving family!


    Our friends at PAW say he is a bit timid with people at first, but warms up fairly quickly. He gets along with other dogs and loves to play with all of his friends. There is nothing he would love more than to spend Valentine’s Day with you and your family.

    If you are interested in meeting Rowan or for more information about her or any of our friends at paw please contact
