When Tebow arrived he was in desperate need of a full dental and had a hanging lipoma on his right shoulder. Unfortunately during the dental Tebow lost most of his teeth but that doesn’t slow him down. He does great with the ones he had left and his halitosis has greatly improved. The hanging fatty tumor was also removed and I’m sure he doesn’t miss that! Currently his health continues to improve. He’s lost a few pounds and is getting the medication he requires for liver disease.
When Tebow arrived he was very sad, out of sorts and had terrible separation anxiety. But by crate training him I can now leave Tebow at home without him being fearful. Living in my permanent foster home has really given Tebow the confidence and care he needed to move forward with his life.
This once scared and anxious boy now has a very happy and merry disposition. He is very curious, mischievous and loves treats of any kind. He has his own spot on the couch underneath a big window and if the window is open Tebow lays on the windowsill just like a cat.
My favorite thing about Tebow is his personality. He really is just a big old goofball. He is so funny when he picks up a fresh scent! His tail stands to attention and starts to wag. Once he really gets going he starts to “baroo” as if saying, “Hey Mom, I found the cat! There was a cat!”
Tebow has taught me so much about patience and acceptance. He has also taught me animals are a lot more sentient than we give them credit for and we can learn so much from them! Thank you Old Dog Haven and our supporters for letting Tebow into my life.
