Dogs are among of the most loyal creatures on the planet, and a poignant photo of a dog waiting for his owner next to an empty hospital bed demonstrated this once again. Someone recorded the terrible moment in a photo, and it instantly went viral on social media.
This is Moose, a three-year-old Labrador mix who was about to be killed because the shelter was overloaded and no one wanted to adopt him. Fortunately, Moose was adopted from Eleventh Hour Rescue in Randolph, New Jersey, and given a new home.
The sad puppy had finally found a home, but his father died of cancer a year later. Unfortunately, Moose had no idea that his father had died, and all he knew was that he needed to be patient and wait. Despite the fact that his beloved human will never return, he remains in the hope that a miracle will occur.
Eleventh Hour Rescue volunteers were devastated, and they soon brought Moose into their shelter. Everyone at the shelter adored Moose and worked tirelessly to ensure that he was adopted as quickly as possible.
“When the owner dies, Eleventh Hour’s policy is that we take the dogs back regardless,” Linda Barish, an Eleventh Hour Rescue executive committee member, explained. “We never believed this would happen in a million years.”
Moose’s story and photo were posted by NorthStar Pet Rescue and Eleventh Hour Rescue in the hopes of finding him a local foster or adoptive. The snapshot has sparked thousands of responses on the Internet.
“Moose stayed patiently next to his dad’s hospital bed, waiting for him to return, unaware that “Dad” had died,” Eleventh Hour Rescue wrote on Facebook.
They have gotten several applications to become Moose’s future parents after the photo went viral on the Internet. Only three days later, Eleventh Hour Rescue reported that Moose had been adopted by his new forever family.
Moose has found his permanent home because to the power of social media. To understand more about what happened to Moose, watch the video below.
