About Me

Tito is an all-around great dog and “flexible” is his middle name!

Tito’s happy on a neighborhood walk, or a hike if you’re the athletic kind. He’s glad to curl up against you on the couch, or on the recliner if that’s your preference. He adores providing watchdog duties in his yard, but he loves just chilling out too. You get the idea…

A gentle soul, Tito would be the ideal companion for very kind children since is naturally very kind (he will squeal and retreat at the first sign of rough handling). This is the perfect dog for a child who wants a loving companion!

Tito is very good at meeting dogs, and new people. He has spent every day for the last three months in the company of a wide variety of dogs and is a favorite companion and playmate.

Although Tito is crate trained and will often seek out his open crate to relax in, he’s had free-reign on the main level in his foster house since his house-training is solid and he doesn’t destroy things that are not his (he owns many toys and chewables). However, as with any dog in an unfamiliar home, Tito should be treated as though he’s a new puppy until he shows he’s transferred his housetraining skills. A change of home is very unsettling to most dogs.

Tito does tend to be quiet except when he’s in watchdog mode, barking alerts at activities in the neighborhood.

Tito’s a naturally good boy and rarely jumps on you, but he does need training on basic commands like come, sit and stay. He is very food-motivated but needs continued training on how to take a treat politely from a hand! Tito’s Guilty Pleasure is Bacon Benebones.

While not well-trained, Tito is sensitive so when he is doing something unwanted such as digging at the fence line, a gentle voice correction or redirection is all that’s needed for him to learn your expectations.

Although Tito takes a twice-daily pill for Diabetes Insipidus (NOT related to common diabetes) he has no symptoms at all!

Tito’s coat is short and sleek and only requires occasional brushing and washing. If you prefer less shedding in your home, increase brushing!

If you would treasure this loving young dog and can commit to providing a forever-home where his health and happiness are priorities, please complete an application for Tito!
