Rebecca Hutto is devoted to dogs and she has good reason.

Working with the Franklin County Humane Society, Hutto has fostered more dogs over the years than she can remember and owned quite a few as well. She said her first foster dog was Bub, “a crazy terrier that spoke only Spanish.”

She said that so far this year, she has provided shelter to more than 30 canines until they could find permanent accommodations.

Her partner in her personal rescue mission is Monty, an AKC registered, 2-year old, liver and white, Springer spaniel. Monty’s parents are a pair of Springers that belong to her daughter in North Carolina .

“Monty is a big brother to all of the dogs I foster,” said Hutto. “He helps with toilet training and if one of the foster dogs wanders away all I have to do is say go find puppy and he will find the missing dog.”

Hutto said Monty, a puppy himself, adapts to the size of his foster siblings and is very careful not to be too rough.

“I have seen him play tug of war with a miniature dachshund. He was so careful. It was the funniest thing I’ve ever seen,” said Hutto.
