Great story for this little guy, but what about all the other great animals that are put down for no fault of their own? I hope the potential adoptees who aren't chosen go out to their local shelter and take home a new family member.

My thoughts as well. There is a celebrity culture here that leaves many by the wayside.

Question, are all euthanized dogs thrown away in a trash bin out back? Seems a bit wrong if you ask me....

Why wouldn't they adopt these dogs out instead of putting them down the day they find them? What kind of shelter is that anyway?!?!?! Very sad, this dog is so cute.

Too bad they don't wish to adopt aborted babies.

how can anybody give up on a face like that? i wonder how much time elapsed from when the animal control officer initially found the little guy to when he tried to kill him because the article makes it sound like both happened in just one day. if true, oklahoma's animal control policy doesn't give a damn about dogs, the officer might as well stuck a third and maybe a fourth needle onto the little guy.

This article still doesn't explain why the shelter would attempt to euthanize this dog THE DAY THEY FOUND IT. This is a young, healthy dog and they didn't even give it a chance to be adopted. Whoever is making decisions at this shelter has a lot of explaining to do.

For all the people that end up NOT adopting this dog - please continue the process and adopt another dog in need. I am always amazed at how many people show up to adopt the dog with the story and leave all the rest in the shelter to be euthanized.

Why was this animal euthanized the same day he was found? Don't they try to find homes before they euthanize dogs? Very upseting!
