A pit bull with terminal cancer has been adopted so he’ll have a chance to live out his bucket list.
Tyson, who is 1, only has a few months left to live after battling a high-grade, soft-tissue sarcoma. Although he had a surgery to remove it, doctors expect the canine’s tumor to return within months so the Best Friends Animal Society, a shelter in California, wanted to make sure he got to happily live out his time left.
“Our hopes for Tyson is that he lives his best life until it's time to say goodbye,” Michelle Sathe, of the Best Friends Animal Society, told InsideEdition.com.
Thankfully, Tyson has been adopted and someone will care for the dog for as long as he lives.
Tyson, who isn’t experiencing symptoms from his cancer yet, has a vibrant personality. He’s goofy. He also loves walks and toys, Sathe said.
“After Tyson is done running around and getting his energy out, he has shown us he has a more mellow, snugly side when given a cozy bed and a toy to chomp on,” Sathe added. “He loves a good massage, too.”
Those who love him are happy he’ll get the chance to live his best life with his new mom.
“That means lots of love, soft places to sleep, snuggles, peanut butter, puppucinos and In-N-Out burgers, trips to the beach, and tons of squeaky toys to play with,” Sathe said.
