This is Titus!
Titus is an approximately 1 year old husky mix. He has a long, confusing history and was originally surrendered to the shelter by his “owner.” Turns out, he was just supposed to be there temporarily and had a true owner who had documentation, pictures, and everything.
Well, since Titus was reclaimed, he has been passed around from home to home. We’re not sure what all has transpired since then, but he is once again up for adoption. Titus needs a secure home where he can rest and not have to worry about losing his home, again.
Titus possesses a trait called heterochromia, also known as “odd-eyed.” His eyes in particular are blue and brown. The trait is caused by one of two genes that can prevent melanin, or pigmentation, from reaching one of the eyes, resulting in a singular blue eye. We think his heterochromia makes Titus an especially charming fellow!
Titus is a sweet and loving dog, but has a lot of energy. He would greatly benefit from a fenced-in yard where he can run and play. He’s still just a young pup, so he could stand to do some obedience training. He has a tendency to jump up to say “hello” and could easily knock over a small child. This could easily be trained out of him, though.
