Wall-e proved them wrong, however, by not just surviving but thriving.
"He was just as healthy as he could be," Prall said after his surprise trash bin discovery, made a full day after the "euthanization" took place.
Amanda Kloski, a veterinarian in Oklahoma, has been caring for Wall-e since his brush with death. Kloski created a PetFinder.com profile for the now popular pup.
According to that profile, Wall-e "has a lot of hookworms and is being treated for that. He has had his first puppy dhpp and bordetella vaccines and a dose of sentinel for fleas and parasites."
Hundreds of families have already offered to adopt Wall-e, so I'm hopeful he'll settle into a loving home soon.
"We have NEVER had the problem (or BLESSING) of more than one family wishing to adopt a dog," Kloski wrote on PetFinder. "Most of our dogs do not get this chance or opportunity even ONCE."
Wall-e's amazing tale appears to have a happy ending. You can create such a positive outcome for dogs and other animals now up for adoption. Please check out the listings at petfinder.com.
