Meet Titus-1.5 yr Pug Mix male


Meet Titus!
DOB 09-07-22, weighing 22lbs, he is a bundle of intelligence and energy who also gives the best snuggles!

Titus was surrendered through no fault of his own and is now fully vetted and ready to find his ideal forever family.

He would love to join an active family who will keep this smart boy engaged with training and adventures for mental stimulation and to channel his intelligence and very agile, active lifestyle

At the same time, having quiet times to relax will give him the balance he needs. He loves to play but also likes his snuggle times.

Titus is a bouncy boy who did not have any training prior to joining our rescue and will require a family dedicated to his ongoing training. He is currently attending training with his foster mom and rocking his classes

He would be fine with older children who are dog savvy and understand how to interact appropriately with a high energy dog.

* As a young dog with a life expectancy of 15-20yrs, he is not a suitable match for older seniors

Titus is vocal at times and would not be a good fit for apartments or attached housing, he would love a fenced yard at his new home to run and play in with his family in between walks/adventures on hikes.

He only barks when he hears a noise or someone outside now that he has settled into his foster home but he may become more vocal initially while transitioning to a new home/family.

He does not whine/howl on and off throughout the time he is alone. He may whine a bit when I leave but settles into his bed and sleeps until my return. I usually give him a treat ball when I leave and that keeps him busy for the first little while. He will still bark if he hears a noise outside but settles quickly. He is OK to be left alone more often than once a week. He is alone one longer day-up to 6 hours) a week and then other shorter periods of time (1-3 hrs.) when I have to run errands, etc.

Notes from his foster mom

Titus is cautious of people he meets on the street and sometimes barks at them in excitement, he is working on his training to redirect with positive reinforcement.
In the home, he gets very excited with visitors, jumping up and wanting their attention. Continuous training required in this area. He settles eventually when the attention is not on him.

GOOD WITH CATS? Unknown but not recommended due to his likelihood of chasing them.

No guarding behaviours observed in any area to this point. As with all dogs, respect during meals and with bones/chewies is ideal to ensure success.

CRATE TRAINED? For travel yes, but Titus is very stressed in a crate in the home and has been a good boy left loose in a dog proofed home

PLEASE ELABORATE ON YOUR FOSTER DOG'S LEASH SKILLS. Titus is improving every day with his leash training and does not pull as much. He responds well to redirection and understands the commands well.

Titus is fine for grooming/handling with no negative reaction
As is typical of young pups, he can be wiggly
He loves his baths and readily comes when he suspects he is getting one.

Titus has met other dogs and would love a suitable canine friend who is young and tolerant of high energy dogs who love to play. He respects warnings from other dogs when he is being too much, but would not do well with a dog who is in his face/reactive.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE DOG'S PERSONALITY/TEMPERAMENT Friendly, loving, and playful and loves attention. He is very patient and easy to redirect if you need his attention. He loves to run outside and play in the snow and has an abundance of energy.

When playing, he will mouth my hand if he gets too excited but he has never bitten.

Titus is still very vocal in the backyard when the neighbour dog is out and he wants to run the fence-line. I have started using a few suggestions I received from Lindsay which help but he needs to be on a leash so he can be redirected. It is definitely a work in progress.

SIT? Yes
WAIT? Sometimes
OFF? Yes

Titus is a very energetic boy who loves to be kept busy. He will do best in a home with two or more family members who can provide him with the stimulation he needs to continue learning and improving his already acquired skills. He is always happy and ready and willing to take on whatever is asked of him. He has been an absolute joy to foster but is ready to meet and bond with his furever family.

Titus is a very easy going dog. He sleeps with me on the bed at night, and waits until I get up in the morning. He does not go in a crate as he appears to be fearful of it.

MANDATORY to have a family comfortable with a dog sleeping in their bed/on their furniture during the day. Titus would be miserable in a home where he is not allowed to do this.

We go for a walk when we get up and then have breakfast. He is very patient and sits quietly as his meal is prepared. I have not observed any food aggression. After breakfast he is very energetic and likes to play with his toys and roll around.

We go for either a walk or in the backyard throughout the day for additional exercise. If I am working, he will settle and have a nap. At night he likes to play with his toys, chew his bone or snuggle if it's TV time.

STRENGTHS/AREAS THEY HAVE IMPROVED ON: Titus is responding more consistently to basic commands than when he arrived, especially to the "off" and "come" commands. I feel with consistent training and time, Titus will learn all his lessons quickly. He is eager to please.

Titus has improved when greeting guests in the house and does not jump up as much, and if he does, responds quickly to the "off" command. He is still excited but settles quickly. His leash training has improved and he does not pull as much. Continued training using his current techniques will help him with further success. He has a good grasp of many basic commands.

TRANSPORTATION-ANY MOTION SICKNESS OR ANXIETY IN VEHICLES? Titus is crated. So far he just lies down until the trip is over. He has not barked at people or other vehicles from the car.
He is becoming more relaxed and comfortable in the crate in the car, he readily enters it and only exhibits a bit of shaking at first.


Once Titus feels safe and loved in his new home, and receives the training he needs, he will be an AMAZING pet and member of his new family. He has been an absolute joy to foster!
