A puppy euthanized by veterinarians has risen from the "dead."
The black-and-white pooch was one of five young dogs "put to sleep" Saturday at a shelter in Sulphur, Okla. Each dog was checked and confirmed to be dead, then the 3-month-old and his four siblings were placed in a trash bin.
On Sunday morning, an animal control officer looked into the bin and discovered that the one pup somehow woke up "just as healthy as could be"
The puppies were selected to be euthanized because of illness, as well as overcrowding due to limited shelter space in the state.
He is described as:
"A delightful Pup, about 3 months old, is surprisingly healthy except for a heavy infestation of Hookworm for which he is undergoing treatment"
Hundreds of families already have volunteered to give Wall-E a place to live.
"We have NEVER had the problem of more than one family wishing to adopt a dog. Most of our dogs do not get this chance or opportunity even ONCE."
No doubt about it - he is one lucky dog!
