A Dog Survives a Euthanasia Attempt and Gets Adopted

The mixed-breed dog was dumped at the Ozark City Animal Shelter on Aug. 19 by his owner, who was moving and wanted to get rid of him. The dog was hurt, bloody — he had been hit by a car, according to the AP. The paw pad on one foot was gone.

After he was treated, shelter volunteer Cortney Blankenship spread the word via social media and tried to get him adopted, but it wasn’t to be. On Sept. 11, he was scheduled to be euthanized. It’s a story familiar to so many shelter workers.
