Diamonds in the Ruff

Finding loving homes for our overlooked dogs and cats 


Meet Titan


Get to know the Diamond

Titan is a giant puppy boy from Texas looking for his furever home. Despite his rough start to life, he's grown into a Hardy boy. He was formerly known as "Termite" but has grown out of his name as well! He was found on the streets at only 20 lbs. and taken in by a rescue. He tested positive for parvo, and recovered, then got bad kennel cough, and recovered, then got a bad stomach bug where he couldn't keep down food or water, and, you guessed it, recovered!


Nothing has been able to keep this big boy down, and we mean that literally; once he seemed to recover fully, he doubled in size! We'd like to think his weight will stick to double digits when fully grown, but it wouldn't be a surprise if another growth spurt landed him in the 100 lbs. range.


As with most giant dogs, he loves to snuggle and may find himself on his human's lap. He seems to have some guardian-breed tendancies and can be wary of strangers, but a friendly dog pal to help break the ice can make a big difference! He loves car rides, is very food motivated, and is not picky, although his favorite snack is peanut butter. He could use some extra treats while learning leash walking!


He loves playtime with other pups and, despite being larger than his adult doggy pals, knows he's a baby and is very sweet while jumping all over them. He thinks kitties are neat, but prefers to admire them from afar, so he would do fine living with a dog-savvy cat and a family prepared to help their kitty enforce boundaries as this giant baby grows.
