Meet Titus, a Pit-bull so rare that he’s the only one of his breed in the world

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

Titus

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.

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. They 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.

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!
