Photo of cute Jack Russell Cross who beat horrific burns as the face of RSPCA’s Guardian Angel fundraiser has been revealed.

Monty’s life was in danger after he suffered third-degree oil burns on 30 percent of his body during an accident at home in September.

With his owner at the time unable to pay his vet bills, he was turned over to the animal group.

“I could tell that Monty’s injuries were serious and an infection was a trigger, so I took him to a vet nearby, where I was told he needed surgery right away,” RSPCA WA inspector Florence Maud said.

“It was a long and difficult procedure, but Monty was very brave.

“Once he’s back at the animal care center and on the mend, he’s like a different dog – so cuddly, happy and cheeky.”

Now 10 months old and fully recovered, Monty has been resettled. It is an outcome that Ms. Maud described as “one of the most heart-warming experiences I have had”.

“It’s a perfect little ray of hope for other animals still waiting for their second chance,” she said.

Monty’s new owner says the cheeky pup has already “taken over the house.”

“He likes to run in the backyard to hide his toys, my tools and our shoes too,” said fond new owner Christian Mustaccio.

Monty is now fully recovered and lives with a new owner.

Monty’s heartwarming story saw him emerge as the blunt face of an initiative aimed at finding patrons for homeless animals over Christmas.

About 31,000 animals are expected to pass through RSPCA shelters this festive season.

“Unfortunately, hundreds of animals are expected to enter our doors over the coming months,” said Marnie Thompson, head of the RSPCA fundraising team.

“By becoming a guardian angel, people can pledge much-needed support to one of these animals in need during Christmas, providing everything they need to recover and prepare for their new life.”
