Miracle Oklahoma Puppy Survives Euthanasia

Talk about a real survivor.

Three-month old pup, Wall-e was euthanized, declared dead and left in a dumpster. But somehow he survived and is now looking for a forever home.

Named after the Pixar robot who was the last of his kind, Wall-e and the rest of his littermates were put to sleep by a Sulphur, Oklahoma dog shelter because they appeared to be very sick. After they were all put down, the vet checked their pulse, declared them all dead and then left them in an outside dumpster

Thankfully, the next morning, Animal Control Officer Scott Prall looked in the dumpster and saw Wall-e wandering around.

“He was just as healthy as could be,” Prall said,

Local vet Amanda Kloski, from the Arbuckle, Oklahoma Veterinary Clinic has now taken him in and after a Pennsylvania woman heard his story and put it on Facebook, the veterinary clinic has been inundated with calls from all over the U.S. and Canada of people wanting to adopt Wall-e.

“He needs a really special home because he’s really special,” Kloski said.

The vet clinic said they will go over all the offers on Wednesday and figure out who will be the best family for the little miracle puppy.

Both the clinic and the animal control officer say Wall-e and the others may not have been put to sleep at all if Murray County, Oklahoma had a better animal shelter. They say both the Sulphur and Davis clinics are small and inadequate.

If you are interested in adopting or fostering any animals at the Sulphur, Oklahoma clinic, call Scott at 580-618-3204 or Amanda at 817-266-1901. Pictures of the dogs are posted on petfinder.com.

Obviously I know a good home for a special needs puppy (or any dog for that matter) is important, I just find it ironic that the people that had no problem euthanizing Wall-e are now the ones making sure he goes to a good home…

Don’t assume that dog pound employees have “no problem euthanizing” dogs – it’s always a heartbreaking decision, but one that must be made for the survival of the fittest. Blame the people that dumped the puppies at the pound, the uninformed ones that buy from pet shops, the back-yard breeders that should know better and the staggering numbers of puppy mills. You can help by contributing money or volunteer effort towards rescue services and/or vet care for rescued dogs or sharing information on the benefits of spay and neuter. Do you do this?

So when one family is chosen and the other bazillion are told No, are those other families going to adopt different dogs?

Excellent and very perceptive comment – you are so right – we all want a dog with a good story, don’t we… We often forget that most dogs (and cats and guinea pigs and birds) found at shelters have a story; if they could talk, we would all reel in horror at their tales of neglect and abuse and abandonment – we would finally see the true face of humans. Good thing they move on and know how to appreciate the joy of a new family.

That is my thought exactly, Where were all those ppl. who are dying to adopt Wall-E when he and his littermates were ‘put to sleep’? If the dumpster had been emptied as it was supposed to be that night this would be a non-story…. sadly!

I can’t believe that 3 month old puppies were euthenized anyway!! And what makes me really sick is that they were simply disposed of in a dumpster as though they were trash. I agree that all those people who don’t get to adopt Wall-E should adopt another dog in honour of his story which is representative of millions of dogs, cats, and other animals that are euthenized because of human error – be that not fixing their pets, not watching them, back-yard breeding them, etc. It is blessed that he survived, but he is only one out of millions and we musn’t forget that :o(

It was noted that this is a very small and poorly funded shelter. Did you see the rusty dumpster that the dead and thought to be dead were dumped in? The control officer seemed to be a kind man so this must me an aweful decision. I hope public notice will help them get enough funds to expand and turn this into a ‘no kill’ shelter. Wall-E has an angel on his shoulder for sure. Maybe his story will save many other pets from the same fate!!!!

Why do we still think animals are ours? Who allows us to euthenize sick animals and then put them in trash?!
This world is for all of us. All the people, cats, dogs..
Being intelligent does not mean we are the owner of the earth but brings us great responsibilities to take care of nature and all other species.

Wow–what incompetence! Throwing the dogs’ bodies in the dumpster? Could the puppies really have been that sick in the first place if they decide the next day Wall-E should live because the injections didn’t kill him? This shelter should be investigated! What other dogs have been needlessly put down? How many dogs have suffered because the vet techs don’t know how do deliver lethal injections?

It makes you wonder how many dogs have survived being euthanized, not noticed and left out in the trash. The miracle wasn’t that he survived but that someone actually found him.

I can’t wrap my mind around that a vet thought he put this baby down twice…? did he not know what he was doing the first time, did he get his license out of a bubble gum machine! & wth with just putting them in a dumpster? still wtf?

Well, it APPEARS that Wall-E, and no doubt his dead sibs, were SOOOOOO adoptable,  there wasn’t even an attempt to adopt them out. This may not have happened if there was adequate space? This would definately not have happened if his parents were spayed and nuetered. It’s not the shelters’ job to shelter peoples’ throw aways. I don’t blame the shelter, that’s why they are called ‘animal CONTROL’ , and at least the irresponsible owners didn’t drown them or bury them alive, but, they may as well have signed the death certificates at the same time they signed the birth certificates when they chose not to spay and nueter. I don’t why people just don’t snip snip their dogs. It’s pathetic. How can people not feel devastated that Wall-E’s sibs are dead? He’s llike the lucky baby that survived the car crash. You want to feel Happy, but, there is still the tragedy.
