Barry Gearhart lost count of the number of days he cried himself to sleep after his beloved senior Pit Bull, Titan, was stolen from the back of his truck.
Barry had raised Titan from a puppy, and the thought of the poor dog suffering in the hands of the thieves was a nightmare for him.

But Barry never lost hope and kept searching for Titan. However, a year passed and there was still no sign of his baby.
One day, Barry posted the missing poster of Titan on the social media page of a local group.
As luck would have it, a woman replied to the post saying that “Titan” looked exactly like “Hank”, a shelter Pit Bull who was about to be euthanized!
Barry collected further information from the woman and made a race to the shelter. He was at the gates of the kennel when he finally realized that “Hank” was indeed his Titan!
Barry broke down in uncontrollable tears as he embraced his four-legged friend again.

The shelter later informed that Titan was found abandoned and the workers had been trying to get him adopted for a year.
But nobody wanted to take a chance on the senior, sad-faced Pit Bull. The poor dog yearned to go home all this time too.
We are so proud of Barry for never giving up on Titan. Titan can finally live comfortably again with his loving dad forever!

10 Of The “Most Loyal” Dog Breeds On The Planet
Giving love and support to humans is something that some dogs do better than others.
While many dogs love everyone they meet and are willing to take treats or belly rubs from anyone, the pups we found are just the opposite.
These 10 dogs are some of the most loyal breeds on the planet. They are rock steady in their loyalty to their owner no matter what.
When the American Kennel Club (AKC) lists loyalty to describe the temperament of the Akita, you know they mean business. The beautiful double-coated working dog of Japanese ancestry is considered hardwired in protecting those she loves. They should be socialized with other dogs and people from the time they are puppies. Their silly, fun, but dignified personalities round out the loyal Akita.
This working dog is smart, full of energy, and oh so loyal to their family. They get along great with kids and have an innate instinct to protect their pack. He’s a watchdog with a heart of gold who oozes dedication to his owner.
