The dog was tenacious in his persistent efforts to get all the meat off the bone. He tenaciously gnawed at it for hours, determined to get every scrap of meat he could. When his owner tried to pry the bone out of his mouth, he held on with fierce tenacity and dogged stubbornness. He only gave up his tenacious, unyielding hold on the bone when his owner offered him a ham sandwich in place of it.
