Titan dutifully served the City of Lorain, Ohio Police Department as a narcotics and patrol K9 from 2015 to 2022. He came to Ohio from the Czech Republic in 2015 where he was paired with his K9 handler and partner, Officer Jamie Ball. Together, they trained at Von der haus Gill in Wapakoneta, Ohio and would go on to serve and protect the city of Lorain together for the entirety of Titan’s 7-year career. Trained in narcotics detection, apprehension, and patrol, Titan was a leading K9 in his department and the surrounding communities, having hundreds of apprehensions and drug seizures for the county during his tenure. When he wasn’t tracking down bad guys, K9 Titan and Officer Ball also enjoyed their time interacting with their community while visiting schools, Girl Scout troops, and assisting in events like Safety Town and Trunk or Treat. Just prior to retirement, Titan was honored to be featured as a K9 voiceover for the Call of Duty video game series in 2022. Upon retiring in 2022, Titan has enjoyed relaxing at home, chasing frisbees, and enjoying the occasional cheeseburger.
