Wall-e, an adorable Oklahoman puppy, is showing the world that cats aren't the only animals with more than one life.
The 3-month-old puppy was euthanized with five brothers and sisters and tossed into a waste bin behind a shelter, only to be discovered the next morning "as healthy as he could be" by an animal control officer.
Wall-e and his brethren, all apparently very sick, had been left at the shelter in Sulphur, Okla. But because of overcrowding and their condition, the puppies were put down. When Wall-e was found "prancing" the next day he was eventually handed over to a veterinary technician who put the story of the black-and-white terrier mix on the adoption website PetFinder.com.
Where to begin with this miracle - pup. .... On Friday 2/18 him and about 5 of his siblings where left infront of Animal Control- due to over crowding and their scrawny appearance they were euthanized that night. ... Wall-e was euthanized twice- once in the arm and then in the heart.... he was believed dead and disposed of in the dumpster "with the rest"..... On Saturday morning (2/19) the animal control officer found him very much alive and hungry...... a young girl gave him the name of Wall-e based on the animated movie since Wall-e was also a survivor/ last of his kind and then came back :)
Prospective owners from all over the United States and Canada have looked in to adopt Wall-e.
"So many people are interested," Kloski told the Associated Press. "Now we're going through and trying to find the adoption applications for the best home."
