Hi everyone, my name is Titus
Hi! My name is Titus and I am currently on the look out for a home all of my own. I came into the care of Lort Smith after I was hit by a train and suffered some trauma to my jaw. The experienced veterinary team here at Lort Smith have helped with my recovery and now I am ready to go out into the big world again.
I require a calm, adults only home that are experienced dog handlers who can continue my training with ongoing one-on-one training classes to work on my manners around other dogs. I love any form of food and will work for anything! The staff that look after me love to teach me new manners and tricks. I just love to learn!
Whilst I have been with Lort Smith recovering, I have been a bit stressed so am currently on some medication to ease my anxiety. I may not need to be on this forever, but it’s best I stay on them while I settle into my new home.
I will be foster to adopt while we work on this.
To help me out, the staff have taken to allowing me to keep them company in the office. I spend most of my day curled up in a ball chewing my toys and being a quiet office buddy. I would love to find my forever home where I could find a bed all of my own to snuggle into.
If I sound like the perfect fit for you, please fill out an expression of interest form.
Adopting an animal
Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime. But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption.
Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life. Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life.
- Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
- Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
- Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
- Do I have time for obedience training?
- If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
- Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
- Does the whole family want a pet?
- Will the pet be allowed inside?
- Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
- Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.
Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:
- Weekly animal food bills and necessities
- Yearly council registration
- Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
- Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
- Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
- Ongoing grooming
- Boarding fees for human holidays
- Enrichment like training, toys etc
