MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Pet of the Week is Moose.

He’s a 3-year-old Pit Bull/Basset Hound mix who’s currently at the Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley.

Moose, who is neutered and weighs about 50 pounds, is described as affectionate and toy-loving, although he might appear shy at first.

The Animal Humane Society says Moose was recently returned to them because his family wasn’t able to keep him.
