In this case, Wall-E and five other dogs were all put to sleep at the same time.
Three month old Wall-E is very much alive and well, despite the fact that he was euthanized and declared dead about a week and a half ago.
"Might say he's an angel dog," said Scott Prall, who found the dog inside a cage with the other puppies outside the Sulphur Animal Shelter Friday evening. Since they were very thin and appeared to be sick, Prall couldn't put them in the animal shelter with the other strays, so he called the vet and had them euthanized.
"Each one was pronounced dead witha stethascope and everything," said Prall. The dogs were disposed of in a dumpter that was supposed to be unloaded later that night. But for some reason, it wasn't. And the next morning, Prall looked inside and found Wall-E.
"He was just as healthy as he could be," Prall said.
The Arbuckle Veterinary clinic took Wall-E in and checked him out.
"Listened to his heart," Prall said, "He's fine." Thanks to the Internet and Facebook, Wall-E's story has gone viral. And the clinic has been inundated with people from across the country and even Canada who want to give this dog's tale a happy ending.
"He needs a really special home, because he's really special," Prall said.
Amanda at the vet clinic says she will look through all those who want to adopt Wall-E Tuesday and decide who will get to take him home. But still she says there's a whole shelter full of dogs, who also need a home.
Both the Vet clinic and the Animal control officer say Wall-E and the others may not have been put to sleep at all.
Animal control officials say Sulfer and Davis clinics are small and inadequate, and a local group is is trying to raise enough money to build a new county shelter.
