Adoptable Pet of the Week: Titus

Titus may be a cranky old man at times, but he’s the newest Adoptable Pet of the Week and looking for adventure! This 5-year-old Yorkshire Terrier is searching for a companion to show him a few new tricks.

His friends at Lost Dog & Cat Rescue Foundation had a few things to say about him:

Age is just a number, right?

Well, Titus’ number on his original shelter paperwork puts him at 5 years, but all the vets agree that he is at least 10! He’s got old eyes, old teeth and an old heart, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any pep. Titus is not content to laze the day away — he loves being out and about, running up to meet new people, and chasing squirrels or rabbits.

Whether he’s outside or in, he’s the ultimate security dog — he will alert you to every person, animal, or delivery vehicle that passes by. People who hear him before they see him always expect a dog that’s much bigger, because he has such a loud, deep bark!

Because he turns into a “cranky old man” when he doesn’t want another dog in his space, Titus needs to be an only dog. He is looking for a patient owner that can help him learn to channel some zen when he gets over-stimulated. Are you the one who can teach this senior some new tricks?
