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.
