It had been a rough ride for the pit bull who had found himself homeless after becoming separated from his owner. And after weeks in a shelter and no interest from prospective families, it finally appeared that the dog might be put out of his misery. But days before his scheduled euthanasia, the pooch got a visit from an emotional man.
Barry Gearhart lives in West Palm Beach, Florida. There, he works as a fitness instructor at a local gym. While the muscle-man may look as hard as steel, however, he harbored a soft spot for Titan, his beloved pit bull.
Gearhart had raised the dog since it was a puppy, and the pair had been as close as can be. So we can only imagine the trainer’s complete horror when someone reportedly stole the pit bull from him in 2014. At the time, Titan was eight years old and sitting in Gearhart’s vehicle while his owner ran an errand.
