“Miracle Dog” Wakes Up Minutes After Being Euthanized, Gets Second Shot At Life.

If you’re iffy about things like fate, you might think twice after listening to this story.

Putting an animal to sleep may be the most difficult thing a pet owner will ever have to do, but sometimes it’s necessary. When a pet is aging or ailing, a vet will offer owners their opinion on the animal’s outlook and pain level. So rather than having the animal continue to suffer needlessly, they’re given a dose of pentobarbital, a seizure medication that causes the heart and brain functions to shut down within minutes. But what happens when you euthanize an animal and it comes back to life minutes later? It sounds like a plot from “Pet Sematary,” but it actually happened!

Someone was clearly watching over an adorable puppy named Rudolph back in January. The pup was living at an Oklahoma animal shelter and his odds of finding a forever home were not looking good.
