Facts about Titus

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog
  • Color: Black - With Brown, Red, Golden, Orange Or Chestnut
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large 61-100 lbs (28-45 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Titus is a stunning young Shepherd who was severely neglected. Having just turned 2 years of age Titus has not been given the best start at life. Kept in an apartment with minimal care Titus was extremely underweight when surrendered to the shelter and is still working towards a healthy weight.

Titus is a very self confident dog who does well when meeting new people but isn't very personable. He has a very dutiful demeanor geared towards having a job or task and not so much towards bonding with a person. He isn't totally standoffish though and does have a wonderful personality hiding behind his mask. Titus is a very intense dog though and is definitely a working dog at heart. Due to his level of drive and poor training we would not suggest him for a home with children under 10 years of age at this moment.

Titus doesn't care much for other dogs aside from the one he grew up with however he coexists pretty well. He enjoys toys of all sorts and would rather spend his playtime running around with the latest and greatest toy. Titus has shown signs of beginning training but also of poor quality training as well. He has a relatively high drive paired with a dominant attitude and poor socialization. This can make him standoffish at times and a downright pain at others. In the end Titus has a willingness to please and is a quick study.

Titus would make a wonderful addition to a household with knowledge of working shepherds and dedication to providing constructive outlets to a dog of this caliber. He would likely excel at most dog sports although he lacks the proper foundation for any intense working lines. First and foremost Titus will require a home dedicated to continuing to improve his health both physically and mentally. Titus is going to require consistent training, boundaries, and socialization along with a high level of exercise.

About Tier Haven Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Tier Haven Rescue, Inc. is a non-profit animal rescue agency based in Louisville, KY that specializes in German Shepherds and similar working breeds. Tier Haven realizes that many German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs) find themselves in shelters due to a lack of training and understanding of the breed. Tier Haven is a no-kill rescue which limits the number of dogs we can care for at any given time for this reason Tier Haven focuses on taking dogs from shelters that are in direct risk of euthanasia and has a separate policy for owner surrenders.

Surrender Policy

Tier Haven accepts owner surrenders on a conditional basis due to the large number of dogs in kill shelters. If you have a dog you would like to surrender you must email pictures and the reason for surrendering to Tier Haven does charge a fee for surrendering a dog; $80 for a fully vetted dog (vaccinations, alter, heartworm test) when vet records are provided and $150 for un-vetted dogs.

Our Adoption Process...

Tier Haven requires an adoption application to be completed and processed prior to meeting or adopting any of our dogs. As a completely foster based organization Tier Haven relies on the application to help ensure that adopters are only meeting dogs that are suitable for their household based on various factors. The application is completed via email and you may email us at to obtain an application. When submitting an application please contact your vet clinic and provide them with a release of information and also inform your personal references that they will be contacted.

Once your application is processed you will be contacted by a volunteer to discuss potential dogs and arrange a meet and greet. Since we are a foster based group we only allow up to three (3) dogs on each meet and greet to keep it manageable for everyone. Meet and greets are often held at public locations to respect the privacy of our foster homes and they are scheduled at the discretion of the foster homes.

Tier Haven charges an adoption fee of $250 for each dog. This includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, heart-worm test, micro-chip, and monthly preventative care while with our organization. All medical records are provided at the time of adoption along with an adoption contract.
