Without a doubt, dogs are the most loyal creatures on Earth. Again, this unconditional love and loyalty is evidenced by a photo that has recently gone viral on social media. What has been called ‘the most ʜᴇᴀʀᴛʙʀᴇᴀᴋɪɴɢ photo ever taken’ shows a dog waiting by its owner’s empty hospital bed!
This is “Moose” a three-year-old Labrador hybrid who is about to be ᴋɪʟʟᴇᴅ because the shelter is overcrowded and no one wants to adopt him. Luckily, Moose was adopted from the Eleventh Hour Rescue Team in Randolph, New Jersey and given a new home.
The sad puppy finally found a home, but dad raised it died of ᴄᴀɴᴄᴇʀ a year later. Unfortunately, Moose didn’t know that his father had passed away, and all he knew was that he needed to be patient and wait. Although he knows that the person he loves will never return, he still holds out hope that a miracle will happen.
Eleventh Hour Rescue volunteers quickly moved Moose into their shelter. Everyone at the shelter loved Moose and worked tirelessly to make sure it was adopted as quickly as possible. “We never believed this would happen in a million years.”
Moose’s story and photos were posted by NorthStar Pet Rescue and Eleventh Hour Rescue in hopes of finding a local adopter or adoption. The snapshot has caused thousands of responses on the Internet. “Moose patiently stayed by his father’s bed, waiting for him to return without knowing that ‘Father’ had passed away,” Eleventh Hour Rescue wrote on Facebook.
They received several profiles to be Moose’s future parents after the photo went viral on the Internet. Just three days later, the Eleventh Hour Rescue Team reported that Moose had been adopted by his new forever family.
Moose has found her permanent home thanks to the power of social media. Moose’s moving photo illustrates that dogs are more emotional and can be more empathetic than humans. Thank you all for your interest & sharing!
