Montana’s Dog Memorial Is A Moving Monument to Man’s Best Friend

If you’ve spent any time in Fort Benton, you’ve probably noticed the statue of a sheepdog sitting on the shores of the Missouri River. This monument pays homage to more than the existence of man’s best friend – in fact, the Shep Memorial serves as a reminder to us all that loyalty and bravery are stronger than we know.

Isn’t this story tragically sweet? The Shep Memorial is one of many reasons to love Fort Benton.
