Titan, the Gentle Giant

Titan was found wandering the streets of Thao Dien alone and scared in late January 2019. We knew, given his breed, that he must belong to someone, however, after an exhaustive search no one came forward to claim this handsome boy.

Titan has all the features of a Belgian Malinois but we think he may also be crossbred. He displays many characteristics of a Belgian Malinois, which are known for their high intelligence and as such live for brain games. Titan loves to do training, he immediately, even though still young, picked up basic commands like sit, shake and stay. He is an intense dog that is play orientated and sensitive. The right adopter should understand that he will need training that is fun, consistent and positive. Although he’s a big boy, he is very people oriented and loves being included in his foster family’s busy life.

About Belgian Malinois

Originally developed in Malines, Belgium, Malinois have a great deal of stamina and truly enjoy working. They are intelligent and very active dogs that excel at many tasks. In addition to herding, they also do well with police work, search and rescue, and in performance events, such as agility.

They’re also very sensitive dogs that don’t respond well to harsh training methods. Malinois are quick learners and eager to do whatever their people ask of them. They excel are obedience, tracking, agility, flyball, herding, showing, Schutzhund and other protection sports, search and rescue, and police work. Trainers describe them as having a high “play drive,” which means that they love to play, and about anything you ask them to do is play to them.

Belgian Malinois can do well in small quarters if they receive enough exercise. They prefer cool climates but adapt well to warmer environments. The ideal adopter loves to exercise and lives in a house with a garden, they would want to have Titan as a family member. If you would like to meet this sweet, gentle big boy, please contact arcpets@gmail.com.
