Monte, a 2-year-old rescue dog from New Mexico, landed one of the leading roles in the upcoming live-action "Lady and the Tramp" film, according to People magazine.

Monte, who was living at HALO Animal Rescue in Phoenix, was cast as "Tramp" in the film, which is set for release as Disney launches its new streaming service — Disney+ — on Nov. 12.

The dog, who was rescued from a kill shelter in New Mexico, was paired with Mark Forbes, the project's animal trainer in 2018.

Monte is set to star alongside a cocker spaniel name Rose, who is set to play "Lady."

The HALO Animal Rescue shared information about Monte in a Facebook post.

"We have a celebrity dog in our midst! Check out Monte, he was adopted last year from HALO and originally came from Las Cruces, NM," the post read. "Monte will be starring as 'Tramp' in the new live action Disney movie according to this People Exclusive."

The post continued, "His adopters say he's been such a good boy and loving life. We are all so happy for him and can't wait to check out the movie when it comes out!"
