MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Moose sat patiently next to his dad’s hospital, waiting for him to return.
But he didn’t know that ‘dad’ had already passed way.

A New Jersey rescue nonprofit called Northstar Pet Rescue is now looking for a new home for Moose. But the 3-year-old Lab mix still taking it pretty hard.

“Moose sat patiently next to his dad’s hospital bed, waiting for him to return, not knowing that ‘Dad’ had passed away. Moose has now been returned to our friends at Eleventh Hour Rescue and he’s taking the loss of his dad pretty hard,” NorthStar posted to its Facebook.

“Please help Moose find a new home and a family for him to love. He’s a sweet happy boy by nature. He just needs people to help his heart heal,” NorthStar said.

“He is a 3-year-old Lab mix who is housebroken, adores kids, okay with dogs (pretty much neutral to them), but not meant for a home with cats or birds. But people, boy, does he love them!”

“If you can help Moose's heart heal by offering him a temporary foster home or a permanent home, please go to ehrdogs.org and put in an application to meet this sweet, loving boy. Let’s mend this broken heart, together.”
