eet Our own deaf
Dane  Ambassador


Adopted 9/3/10
Titus has been adopted (again) and this time it looks like it really will be a forever home.

Dear Oakridge Clan!
It was WONDERFUL meeting you...each & everyone of you!
We made great time on the trip home. Titus & Jonah sprawled/snoozed in the back and Isabel snuggled up/snored in the front seat.

Titus inspected his new blueberry orchard/dog yard...then of course Isabel had to show him all the cool stuff too. Jonah was like..."been there bought the T-shirt...where's my bed?" And Titus has made himself comfortably at home immediately.

Anywho...WE ARE ALL POOPED! And have the photos to prove it. Thought you'd get a kick. I've several more pics I snapped during our visit & will send on...but am too tired to re-size them now. So...you folks in Oakridge know...

we already we can't imagine life without the wonderful creature known as "Titus."

Will stay in touch here & get the rest of pics to you in next day or so. Thanks ever so!!!!

Hugs to all..

Titus & his Forever Family

  • Temperament - Mostly Titus seems to be one of those quiet slow moving male Danes we all love so much. He's still young so he does have his wild playful moments, but even at this age they aren't all that common. He has separation issues and worries about being abandoned, so he'll whine if locked away from you, but it's really pretty mild and he is learning to get over it

Titus was surrendered by his owners because their older dog did not get along well with Titus. The problem wasn't with Titus, he gets along fine with other dogs. But Titus was the "new" dog and so Titus had to go. Titus is house broken, likes to lay within eyesight of his people, and really enjoys being around others. Titus is very loving and will make someone a great dog. Titus obviously loved his family because it took him several days here to calm down and stop looking for them to come back for him. And it took him several more days to commit to being here with us and start engaging my wife and I. When he first got here he didn't like people touching his ears or petting him around the ears, but he's over that now, and loves to have his ears rubbed. He was also slow to engage the other dogs. He mostly tried to stay out of their way and ignore them. Now he loves running and playing with the gang. He does have some separation issues, nothing big, he just whines when locked away from his people. He isn't destructive, and doesn't have to be touching you or anything, he is just scared you're going to disappear on him. Which isn't really that big a surprise, all things considered. He is a  big sweet ol' boy who just wants to have a family to take care of.

Update 7/10 -Titus was adopted by former DDRI adopters, Shawn & Kathy S. last year, who also adopted Chance from us in 04. Chance is now 9 and has been Kathy's service dog for a number of years. The plan was to train Titus to take over Chance's service dog duties when he was no longer able to perform them. Sadly Titus just wasn't working out as a service dog and they had to bring him back. So Titus is up for adoption again. He is good with kids, cats, other dogs, whatever. And he is a very sweet boy.

He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion"
