One of the toughest goodbyes. Wanted to make a special tribute to the sweetest boy ever – thank you for all the joy you brought and all the memories. Aunt Patty, thank you for loving him, and thank you to all the other people including Miss Shea and Miss Mindy for sharing so much love with Bronco. If you had the pleasure of meeting Bronco, one of the best dogs ever, I would love to hear your story. • • Also, thank you for taking care of him every time he was sick – SEVO-Med, Blue Pearl Vet and UF Small Animal Vet Hospital (Go Gators)
“One of the toughest goodbyes. Wanted to make a special tribute to the sweetest boy ever – thank you for all the joy you brought and all the memories.”
Tebow, who told AOL.com that he got Bronco as a gift back in 2010, the same year that he was drafted by the Denver Broncos, also posted a pictorial tribute to his favorite canine.
Bronco was there for it all
Tim Tebow has enjoyed a rollercoaster life in the sports world ever since he was drafted by the Denver Broncos, and Bronco was there to see him through it all.
Tebow played just two seasons in Denver, and Tebow mania was all the rage. Despite leading the Broncos to a playoff win against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tebow was let go by the Broncos after the 2011 season and was signed by the New York Jets in 2012.
After one season in the Big Apple, Tebow was released. After the NFL, Tebow, with his faithful little buddy Bronco, focused on baseball.
Since 2016, Tebow has risen from Single-A ball to Triple AAA and is currently a member of the New York Mets organization with Syracuse.
All that time, Tebow had Bronco by his side as much as possible. Tebow often referred to Bronco as “his son” on Twitter, showing how special Bronco was to the former Heisman winner.
