Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We’d like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet Titus, an 8-year-old St. Bernard currently residing at The Humane Society of New York in Manhattan.

Though this sweet pup – whose story came to us via the Mayor’s Alliance for N.Y.C.’s Animals – grew up in a rural area, when his owner became ill and was no longer able to care for him, he ended up in the Big Apple. The 101-lb. pup is still adjusting to the change, but he really wants to return to country living.

“He never lived in the city before and although he is okay for now, we feel it’s best that he returns to an environment that he is comfortable in,” says his Adopt-a-Pet.com bio. “Something less hectic and more green.”

Despite all of the changes in his life, Titus is a sweetheart and bonds quickly with people, and will welcome belly rubs from his human friends. “He is an enormous mixture of sweetness and shyness,” reads his bio. “Basically, he is a small dog in a big dog’s body.”
