|The day we brought Titus home|
|Titus at six months, sitting on Cali|
We started looking at dobermans for a handful of reasons. They're incredibly loyal, large, and slightly leery of strangers. Living in the city, we wanted a dog that would look and sound scary :) Dobermans are often referred to as "velcro dogs" by their owners, because they like to be with their family. Titus will lean into us so much so that he'll knock me over, just trying to get close. I desperately wanted a dog that was loyal to me and Titus doesn't disappoint! Cali is loyal to Chou and could care less about me. Mo is the most disloyal dog I have ever met. He'd meet you once, go home with you, and never look back. Useless.
Fortunately, Titus took to E the minute we brought her home and hasn't left her side. Those two are thick as thieves, and I love it! He just had better not ditch me for her... then we're back to square one.
Disclaimer: I firmly believe that all dogs are capable of being loving pets. It's up to the owner to establish authority, proper training, and exercise. If you don't want to train and exercise your dog, please go get a cat or a hamster instead.
