Gideon Tobias

German Shepherd

Meet Gideon Tobias

Gideon has since passed away. He was a beautiful 4- yr old German Shepherd. At the age of 3 he was diagnosed with a horrible, incurable disease, perianal fistulas. This disease has to be treated with steroids and topical treatments...sometimes surgery. He battled hard for 8 months before succumbing to a secondary affliction, Irritable Bowel Disease (IBD). He was a happy boy through it all and until his steroid driven munchies caused him to eat EVERYTHING he could find he was his usual self in spite of this wasting disease. It was finally an enlarged colon and a severe blockage that took my baby from me. If nothing else, I want his life to bring more awareness to this horrible disease. He saved my life, but I wasn't able to return the favor. Please let his memory live on.
