You’re probably thinking that you just saw a photo of a cheetah. Am I right? Because I thought the same!

One look at a photo of Titus, and it has you believing that he’s a cheetah, and you think nothing else of it. But, really Titus is actually not what he seems to be.

In reality, Titus is a pit-bull, a rare, one-of-a-kind Albanian pit-bull and there’s no other animal like him of his breed. Is your mind blown yet? This dog’s breed is so rare that there is only one living proof of the fact that the breed even exists, and that’s Titus himself.

A lot of people know this famous pit-bull as “the dog with cheetah spots” because that’s exactly what meets the eye when people first understand that Titus is actually a canine. But not many people knew about Titus and his rare breed until this picture went viral all over the internet. While Titus's appearance is unique, his playful energy is common in many dogs, often leading to 'zoomies,' a behavior you can learn more about here.

Although there are many dogs that have a cheetah-like appearance these days, it’s almost impossible to find one that replicates the look of a cheetah the way this pup does. While Titus's looks are extraordinary, his dietary needs are like any other dog's, and you can explore suitable options hereThey say that there is a “mutation” behind this appearance and sometimes this “mutation” isn’t all natural.

There are many ways to create a dog with a cheetah-like appearance. Many are saying that since this dog’s body and face replicated a cheetah to the T, groomers probably added spots to Titus using nontoxic, temporary ink, which is completely safe for animals. To maintain Titus's striking appearance, it's essential to have the right grooming tools, which you can find in this collection of non-food pet supplies.

Do you have stories or pictures of animals that come from rare breeds that you’d like to share? We’d love to hear about them in the comments below. In the meantime, tell us what you think about Titus and his spot on, cheetah-like appearance. He sure had us fooled!
