Puppy who woke up after being euthanized gets new leash on life

Rudolph is only several months old, but already his story of being euthanized but living to wag his tail has folks calling this pup a miracle.

The pup was set to be euthanized at an overcrowded shelter in Oklahoma. Rudolph was given the medication, but then something bizarre happened - it didn't take.

Veterinarians went to check on him, but little Rudolph was still awake. After the strange event, the vet said he wouldn't do it again and Rudolph was transferred to a no-kill shelter.

"God had a different plan because he woke up," Kings Harvest Pet Rescue said.

The rescue posted Rudolph's photo on Facebook on Jan. 16, seeking someone to give the puppy who lived a second chance at life.

By the next day, Kings Harvest Pet Rescue told FOX 17 News Rudolph was adopted out to a "wonderful woman" and is "super happy."
