Designer breeds seem to be all the rage, and we are endlessly amazed at the creative pairings and descriptive names for these concocted canines. Our handsome Titus appears to have characteristics of Boston Terrier-Beagle DNA, or in designer terms, he is a "Boggle."

Such creativity, or accidental happenstance, has produced a mighty cute, lovable little scamp. Titus came to our rescue from NYCACC, where his owners left him, after a bout of bad luck changed their financial circumstances. About five years old, Titus finds himself in rescue, awaiting a second chance at the good life.


The melding of these two breeds seems to have produced a plucky, confident little dog. He has all of the Boston Terrier's geniality, blended with the Beagle's "nose for trouble." Titus is quite the character, and he has completely charmed everyone. He can be a bit reserved at first meeting, but after a short while, he melts into his handler's arms for hugs and kisses.

Titus clearly has the goofy Boston mug, with large protruding eyes, that inspires a doubletake and ear to ear grin. His physique is thoroughly Beagle. He has a small but muscular body, square-shaped head, floppy ears, and long tail. His glossy black and white coat, is short and flat with spiffy tuxedo markings, that give him a hint of Boston elegance, but requiring minimal grooming. This crossbreeding has produced a strong, robust physical structure that is free of the breathing issues that plague purbred Bostons.

Titus would be a good choice for an moderately active single or couple who enjoy a fiesty, pintsized companion. He needs a savvy adopter with a strong personality, willing to troubleshoot the occasional reactive response to a random stranger or bicycle. He requires a lot of exercise, and should be leashwalked two to three times daily at a brisk pace. Titus does require some mental stimulation to appease his Beagle nature, so formal obedience and leadership training should be on the agenda.

Titus had limited exposure to other dogs in his former home, but has done well with many of our confident, friendly fosters. He could easily join a multi-dog home, but a dog to dog introduction is necessary to determine chemistry. Titus is a pretty friendly boy, who enjoys alot of attention once he warms up.


Titus has great housemanners and is house trained and crate trained. He is a companion dog, and likes to be front and center with his people. He will become fussy in his crate if left alone too long. We expect adopters to troubleshoot the occasional accident that may occur in his transition.

Titus has been neutered, and has been vaccinated for rabies and DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus). He has had the 4snap test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis.
