Titan's previous owner passed away. She was ill for a long time but we believe he was loved by her very much. Titan is a little confused but is adjusting after being in a cage in boarding for 8 weeks waiting to find rescue. He is housebroken and loves to play fetch. He gets along with all of the dogs in the foster home and loves every person he has met. His favorite thing to do is EAT and he jumps straight up and down when it is dinner time- but will sit if we ask him too (shaking with excitement). He loves to play fetch and ride in the car as well. He is a pure bred Chesapeake Bay retriever and true to his breed, he loves the water! He is 6 years old with the energy of a 3 year old but does have a little decreased vision from a growth that was removed from his lower lid. He gets along with other dogs, cats and kids. We do not have to crate him when we leave. Titan does not get on the furniture and has good house manners although we always recommend crating when unsupervised until you know how he will act in your home. Titan does not mind the crate at all. Titan is about 75 lbs and is being fostered near Gainesville, VA. Please read about the breed before applying to adopt. This is a great article- http://www.cbrrescue.org/articles/dontbuy.htm. Even though Titan is the most easy going Chessie I have ever met, chessies are not for inexperienced dog owners.
All adult dogs, cats, and kittens are altered prior to adoption. Puppies too young to be altered at the time of adoption must be brought to our partner vet in Davidsonville, MD for spay or neuter paid for by Operation Paws for Homes by 6 months of age. Adopters may choose to have the procedure done at their own vet before 6 months of age and be reimbursed the amount that the rescue would pay our partner vet in Davidsonville.
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
