Barry Gearhart was devastated when he lost his pit bull, Titan. That’s why when he received the news that Titan was in an animal shelter, he immediately went there to get her.
About a year before that, Gearhart lost his dog. He went to West Palm Beach, FL, with his usual companion, Titan. After parking his truck by the side of the street, he went out and left his dog for a few moments.
When he came back, Titan was no longer in the truck. He looked for the pit bull everywhere, but he couldn’t find him. Somebody stole the dog from his vehicle.
Gearhart looked for Titan. He cried almost every day each time he remembered his best friend. After many months of not finding him, he gave up hope that he would ever see him again.
Unknown to him, Titan came under the care of an animal shelter months after he disappeared. It’s unclear how the dog ended up there, but the shelter staff took good care of him.
Because he was a senior dog, Titan had less chance of being adopted. The shelter let him go through socialization training to boost his chances of adoption. However, nobody came to get him.
The shelter had no choice but to have the dog scheduled to be euthanized. Around the same time, Gearhart tried once more to look for his dog. He posted photos of Titan on Facebook.
One of those photos got the attention of shelter staff, who recognized the dog immediately. The shelter contacted Gearhart and told him they have his dog. They asked him to come as soon as possible, as Titan was to be euthanized in two days.
Gearhart quickly went to the animal shelter. And there, inside a kennel, was his best friend.
Titan barked and whimpered at the sight of his human dad. He looked like he couldn’t wait to get out of there and go home. Gearhart couldn’t be happier. He found Titan just in time.
Now they are together again at home and enjoying each other’s company. Watch their amazing story below.
