Photos showing dog is waiting for owner by his empty hospital bed

The picture of three-year-old Labrador blend Moose sitting persistently by the empty bed was uploaded to Facebook by North Star Pet Rescue, a New Jersey charity, on Tuesday.

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