The miraculous story of Wall-E,
A dog that an Oklahoma shelter “euthanized” and confirmed to be dead was recently found alive and well in the facility’s dumpster, News 9 in Oklahoma City has reported.

The three-month-old male black and white puppy had supposedly been put to (permanent) sleep with injections to one of his limbs and to his heart. A stethoscope test at the Sulphur, Okla., shelter led to the declaration that he’d died.
“You might say that he’s an angel dog,” animal control officer Scott Prall told News 9, after Prall found the resurrected dog, now named Wall-e, wandering around inside the trash bin.
Disney-Pixar’s fictional Wall-e was a robot that was the last of his kind.
Four of puppy Wall-E’s littermates did die as intended during the euthanasia process. Someone had previously left the dogs outside of the shelter, already over-crowded with homeless pets. Staff there believed the puppies were thin and “appeared to be sickly,” so the decision was made to put them down.
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.
I can see proponents of euthanasia saying, “We would never let this happen with human beings. We would make sure there were no miracles!”by
