Montgomery is a 10-month-old cutie pie who was transferred to the SPCA of Texas with her sister, Cheyenne.

They are still getting used to their surroundings and sometimes it is a little scary because of all the loud noises. Montgomery is a very affectionate girl who loves to cuddle, and since she’s still a young girl, she’ll be very trainable. She just needs someone who will help her build her confidence so her true personality can really shine. Montgomery and Cheyenne are very close, and they would really love to go to a loving home together. Please come see them soon! #12036720
