It all started when Moose was on the loose! This five to six-year-old Black Labrador Retriever mix arrived as a stray at the Rutherford County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on August 26th. Unlike most stray dogs coming into shelters, Moose was microchipped. His owners were called, but they never came for him. He was already neutered and a beautiful boy; however, because he was a big black dog, he had no adopter or rescue interest.
