Looking for a great dog to share life with? Meet Titan, from the Mid-Atlantic Great Dane Rescue League! My human photographed Titan and learned quickly that he is a sweetheart with tons of energy who loves to run and play. He will make a pawsome addition to an active family and a pawsome running, walking or hiking partner!
He may be a bit shy at first, but then it’s “game on” and doggie kisses! He has manners but is still a puppy! He gets along with dogs he’s met. He likes to chase cats so no cats in home. Barks! He is not recommended for homes with small children.
Titan needs a home with a 6-foot fenced yard!
