The Oklahoma Alliance for Animals took Teddy into custody, which bought him time to recover. If he had been brought to the Broken Arrow animal shelter, Tuesday would be his last day allowed there.
They say they will assess him after the results of the tests come back, and he will be put up for adoption if they are unable to find his owner.
Teddy will need a loving owner to put him on a diet.
