Tim Tebow Reveals His Dog 'Bronco' Passed Away in Emotional Instagram Post

Former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow is taking a harder hit than any of the ones he endured on the gridiron.

Tebow's dog, Bronco, has sadly passed away at the age of nine. The former QB and current Mets minor leaguer revealed the news in an emotional Instagram post.

Tebow uploaded a touching video to Instagram featuring one of Bronco's last moments before doctors put him down Wednesday.

Bronco was named after the team that drafted Tebow and was always featured on social media. He was even in Tebow's first Instagram post ever.

Tebow first received Bronco, a Rhodesian ridgeback, as a gift just after getting drafted in 2010.

They were together through Tebow's stints with four different NFL teams, as well as his recent career with minor league affiliates of the Mets.

Pour one out for the good boy Bronco. If you have a dog, make sure you give him or her a big hug when you get home from work today.
