Dog Sat By Hospital Bed After Dad Passed Away, Would Not Accept He Was Gone

The dog-human bond can come with a price, especially for this beautiful dog named Moose. Moose lived a very tragic life and was adopted when he was found dumped on the side of a road by his first owner who didn’t want him anymore. He was tied to a road sign as if he meant nothing. That is when Eleventh Hour Rescue in New Jersey took Moose in. The sweet dog needed a stable environment and a new owner who would never give up on him. Meet Moose, this is his story!

Moose luckily found the perfect dad and new best friend. However, tragedy struck again in his life when his dad got very sick. Moose was so loyal and stood by his dad’s side day in and day out. But, sadly enough, the day finally came too soon and his dad passed away. Moose’s grief got the best of him and he refused to leave the empty hospital bed.
