Is Titus the Pit-bull really a rare Albanian breed as the internet is claiming?
There’s a new internet sensation creating a lot of buzz online. The beautiful male model is inviting several oohs’ and Aah’s as he is one beautiful guy. And he’s not HUMAN!! Meet the one and only Titus, the Pitt Bull.
Titus is one of the rarest of Pit Bull breeds and he almost looks like a magnificent leopard sitting pretty waiting to be groomed. What makes Titus unique is the fact that he is one of the few Albanian Pit Bulls in existence. Did that paragraph attract you?? Well read on to find out the real story.
1 Pitbulls are not as aggressive as you think
Dogs as you know are man’s best friend. Pitbulls especially are stereotyped as aggressive dogs but on the contrary they can be very docile and good home dogs. As all dogs, they do have their temperaments, but that is almost always because of poor training and behavioral issues.
Titus on the other hand is a beautiful Pitbull breed but Titus became famous as a big internet April fool’s joke when his owner had him groomed and painted with non toxic pain to look like a rare breed. He simply posted it as Titus the Albanian pit-bull. Of course, there is no such breed. This is how the cute Titus actually looks.
2 How did Titus look like a leopard?
Most owners love making their dogs look like a leopard through photoshopping and software programs. Titus instead was the product of a groomer’s expertise that marked Titus with the fantastic cheetah spots using non toxic ink, a practice being followed by many dog owners today.
Although there are also dog marking mutations in existence, these hardly occur and special markings on dogs are all a result of unnatural makeup. Call it a bad example and animal cruelty but you’ll be surprised as to how many people are opting to make their dogs look like this. Some are being photoshopped and some are being painted with non toxic paint.
3 Here’s another dog that has the same spectacular markings like Titus
When Titus’ images were first posted on the net, they went near viral and overnight he became an internet sensation, another great example of a dog with cheetah marking similar to Titus is this Sahara Daschund famous for her mythical appearance.
4 Titus will always be one of a kind
The fact that Titus sits on a groomer’s tables is suggestive of the fact that his family had opted for the transformation. Titus looks more majestic in comparison to his original appearance. Here he is portrayed next to a leopard which is undoubtedly a tame one. Unless! Of course the image has been photoshopped.
With or without markings, I’m sure Titus will always be one of a kind as he seems a gentle and beautiful animal.
