Much like the Greek gods with the same name, Titan the Pit Bull mix is a larger than life hero who defies the odds and did the impossible. Recently, this loving family pet performed a powerful feat. He saved a life, a life that John Benton thanks Titan for every day.
John Benton was about to leave for work when Titan began acting erraticly. The heroic Pit Bull began frantically running in circles. Titan barked and blocked the door. He then began running up a few steps of the staircase and coming back down alerting Benton to danger. Benton climbed the stairs to find his wife, Gloria, had suffered a brain aneurysm and had fallen fracturing her skull. Without Titan, she probably would not have survived.
Now, the pup is being awarded with “Neighbor of the Year” by the Vintage Pointe Neighborhood Association, making him the first canine to ever receive it. Click here to see the video.
We love when POSITIVE stories about Pit Bull type dogs are publicized by the media rather than simply the negative stories that are often told about this misunderstood breed.
Dog trainer Michele Crouse told NBC that it’s not the dog’s breed, but rather the dog’s owner that determines the animal’s aggression. “It’s all upon the responsibility of the owner and not what dog they have. It doesn’t matter if they have a 2-pound Chihuahua or a 200-pound mastiff. It’s not the dog’s breed, but rather the dog’s owner that determines the animal’s aggression”.
We agree 100% with Michele Crouse.
A few weeks ago another courageous Pit Bull named Cobain saved an elderly woman who had fallen into a ditch.
Great job Titan and Cobain!
