Hollywood’s newest superstar is handsome (of course), playful and a big fan of giving wet kisses. He’s a 2-year-old rescue dog named Monte and he will appear in Disney’s “Lady and the Tramp” live-action remake that debuts on Nov. 12 on Disney+.
The staff loved him for his affectionate nature and good behavior, like knowing how to sit, AZfamily.com reported. He also seemed to enjoy attention, which is a crucial skill to have in show business!
Fortunately, Hollywood casting agents came calling and scooped him up. More specifically, animal trainers came from Hollywood and sought to find a dog who could appear in “Lady and the Tramp.” Monte turned out to be perfect for the role of the scampish Tramp in the new live-action film.
Disney released the original, animated version of “Lady and the Tramp” in 1955. It’s a sweet love story about a fancy pup named Lady who falls in love with a dog from the wrong side of the tracks named Tramp.
Even if you haven’t seen the original film (you should! It’s very sweet!), you’ve likely seen the famous spaghetti-kissing scene:
For Disney’s 2019 remake, “The Spy Who Dumped Me” star Justin Theroux voiced Tramp while Monte “acts” onscreen. Lady will be played by a cocker spaniel named Rose and was voiced by Tessa Thompson, star of “Creed.”
Here’s a first look of the adorable (canine) pair together:

Even though Monte is a movie star now, he’s still living a dog’s life. One of his animal trainers adopted him and he reportedly lives an otherwise regular existence. We hope this means lots of treats and belly rubs and being told he’s a good boy.
You can watch Monte, Rose and all the other pups who will appear in the “Lady and the Tramp” remake when Disney launches its new streaming service, Disney+, on Nov. 12.
The paid streaming service will cost $7 per month or $70 per year, according to CNET — so make room in your budget for yet another streaming service in your life!
