TULSA, Okla. — Robert South hopes the community keeps watch for his lost dog, Titan.
Titan is South's longtime companion. The dog disappeared three weeks ago near W Admiral and Santa Fe Ave. Titan is a German Shepherd + Border Collie + Australian Shepherd mix. He has black spots on his nose, a brown streak that starts at his left eye into the back of his coat, a bushy tail, and a white chest. Titan is 2.5 years old.
South suffers from anxiety and is forced to pause plans of getting Titan certified as a service dog. He posted a "lost dog" announcement on multiple Facebook pages. The posts garnered a lot of attention and some sightings of Titan, but none of the commenters could catch him.
The South family is new to Green Country. They moved here from Kentucky. Their bond with is a strong one. The dog even accompanied South as he navigated out of homelessness.
Anyone who spots Titan can call South at (270) 240-7000.
Service dogs can be very expensive, but a local nonprofit is dedicated to carrying that burden. Anthem Service Dogs is an organization that rescues, trains, and donates service dogs to veterans and civilians in Tulsa.
"If something is happening to both a veteran or someone with PTSD for example, the dog that is next to them that is calm in a situation where they may be experiencing a panic attack, anxiety attack, or a blackout, they can rely that their dog is ok, so they are ok," Kate Friedl said, Anthem's executive director.
The Anthem organization is completely volunteer, and donation based. There is no charge to their clients.
Anthem applicants must show proof of a disability.
