Titan D7485 (was Steve)

Meet Titan, German Shepherd, 3 yrs, 88 lbs. This handsome boy's time was up at a long distant shelter so we rescued him. He is very skinny and has fly bitten ear tip. Everyone that has met him informed me that he is a very good doggie. Great with other dogs he was tested with. He loved playing in the dog pool since it was so hot at the shelter. Loves treats and cooperative with walks from shelter kennel to hall ways to yard. Passed all shelter staff and volunteer extensive evaluation/tests. We took him on Friday 7/16/21.

Update 7/17/21: He needs a new foster home with experience. Not working out at his current foster home of 1 day. She got him on Friday. He was neutered on Thurs. He was fine on Friday, ate well and crated over-night and quiet. Loves food! Sat. am, when foster home leashed him from crate and he was rushing to go out door to yard, she held him back and tried to adjust the leash clip to his collar. He did low growl warning. She continue to try to remove his cone, he growled and then bite her hand. He was either frustrated to go out for potty or didn't like being held back and he reacted. He went to potty and wanted to play ball. So he did a correction but of course, our hands have thin skin. He continue to be happy and friendly, and even giving her kisses today, Sun. The foster home does not feel comfortable fostering him due to his size and this incident.

At the shelter, staff and all volunteers adored him. Past shelter tests and many volunteers took him out, handled/grabbed/petted all over body to paws, and good with other dogs. So he needs a very GSD experienced foster home for his size and home with backyard. No kids or smaller size dogs for safety. We need to see more of his behavior once he settles into a routine. He is good with dogs his size,, both male and female, that he met at the shelter.

Update 7/19/21: Titan is now boarding at a kennel. He was fine with his foster home trying on harness on him the day before. When our transporter volunteer walked into home, but once the volunteer put the harness away, he slowly warmed up to her his foster home when she had to transport him to boarding. At the shelter he was friendly with everyone, but at the home since Friday, he needs more time to warm up to a stranger entering home. After 1/2 hour of playing ball and he then took treats but quickly. Need to use open hand and give him time to learn visitor is not a intruder. He will need a very experienced and confident GSD adult only guardian. Rode in back seat of car fine. Jumps in and lays down. Came out of car fine and enjoyed walking around. Front desk person took leash and walked him to kennel. No issues. He is confused and we need to watch his behavior while he learns. Titan is doing fine with kennel staff, friendly and loves playing with water (misters).

9/7/21  He is now with a new foster home and doing fine.  We spent $1,200 on his boarding and food needs.  Donations are greatly appreciated.
