About the Jesus Puppy…

7:00 AM EST on March 7, 2011

I’m sure you’ve heard of this by now, but a litter of puppies was recently euthanized and thrown into a dumpster.  The only problem?  One of the puppies came back to life.  Meet Wall-E:

He was euthanized, declared dead and left in a dumpster, but somehow a three-month-old puppy is alive and now has whole new future ahead of him.

Wall-e, along with the rest of his litter, was left outside the Sulphur dog shelter. He and his littermates were put to sleep because they appeared to be very sick. The vet checked their pulse and declared every one dead. But 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, who added Wall-e was named after the Pixar robot who was the last of his kind.

Local vet Amanda Kloski, from the Arbuckle Veterinary Clinic, took him in. After a Pennsylvania woman heard his story and put it on Facebook, the veterinary clinic was inundated with calls from all over the U.S. and even 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.

First of all, here's the caption Channel 9 used for the picture above:   "Wall-e, a three-month-old puppy who was euthanized but miraculously survived, now has a new "leash" on life." New "leash" on life, huh?  That's about as clever and funny as the Children's Hospital.  Whoever wrote that should be on "the short leash" at work.

Anyway, this is a heartwarming story and Wall-e seems like a cool dog, but who the hell would want to own a puppy that rose from the dead? That would be too much pressure.  You’d basically be owner of the Jesus of dogs.  Before you know it, Wall-E is going to start turning water into beef gravy and curing dogs with mange.  That would be annoying.
