Euthanized Puppy Emerges Alive from Dumpster

Three-month-old puppy was euthanized on Saturday, but found alive again on Sunday.

Puppy was euthanized on Saturday, but found alive i Dumpster on Sunday.

It’s bad enough that there are still shelters euthanizing dogs for ‘space’, but it gets a lot worse when the shelter staff can’t even tell the difference between a live dog and a dead one.

From the New York Post:

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., News 9 in Oklahoma City reported. 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 survived.

“He was just as healthy as could be,” Scott Prall told News 9.

The puppies were selected to be euthanized because of illness, as well as overcrowding due to limited shelter space in the state, said Amanda Kloski, a veterinarian in Oklahoma who has been caring for the puppy since his resurrection.

Kloski created a PetFinder.com profile for the small dog, named Wall-E after the Pixar film character. A woman in Pennsylvania then took up the cause, working to find the puppy a home.

“He is a delightful Pup, about 3 months old, is surprisingly healthy except for a heavy infestation of Hookworm for which he is undergoing treatment,” Marcia Machtiger wrote in a special website she created for the animal.

She stresses that if a home for Wall-E isn’t found soon, he could wind up back at the shelter — where he very well might end up being euthanized again.

    So…what are the chances that the veterinarian who is caring for this puppy is the same vet who “euthanized” him?

    Supposedly tons of offers are coming in from folks who want to adopt the little survivor. I hope he gets the second (third?) chance he deserves.

    The rest of his litter are still dead, though. Killed on intake because they looked “scrawny” and not worth the shelter’s time to try and find space for them. Or foster care. Or anything.

    Such a cute thing. I hope he ends up in a good, loving home.
    I’m just amazed that this excuse for a shelter is killing…puppies. People are always dying to get puppies. It’s the older dogs that are harder to place. I don’t support killing either, but since they seem determined to kill, why would they kill the dogs most likely to be quick adoptions?

    I think they’ve been inhaling too much of their own gas.

    I thought vets took an oath to protect animals and not to kill them. The vet that has the puppy now, I hope is not the same vet that tried to kill this obviously healthy dog. Also,why are animals disposed of in this way. My trust in animal shelters is now in question. In a time where politicians wipe
    their asses with hundred dollar bills, it seems there should be monies to fund a proper animal shelter.
