A lonely dog might be getting anew home after a heartbreaking photo was shared showing him waiting for hisdead owner to come home.
Northstar Pet Rescue posted a photoof Moose by a hospital bed to Facebook on June 17. Moose sat patiently next tohis dad's hospital bed, waiting for him to return, not knowing that “Dad"had passed away," the post read. "Moose has now been returned to ourfriends at Eleventh Hour Rescue and he's taking the loss of his dad pretty hard."
The organization urged users to help the 3-year-old Lab mix find a new home.They said he was "housebroken, adores kids, okay with dogs (pretty muchneutral to them), but not meant for a home with cats or birds."
"Moose would do best in a homewhere he wasn't left home alone all day long, he misses his people too much. Ifyou can help Moose's heart heal by offering him a temporary foster home or apermanent home, please go to ehrdogs.org and put in an application tomeet this sweet, loving boy," the post read.
