A dog has been renamed Lazarus after surviving a veterinarian's lethal injection.
The mixed-breed pet was left at an Alabama animal shelter in August because his owner was moving and could no longer care for him.
He was already cut and bleeding, with a pad missing on his left rear foot, after surviving a car accident.
Animal control officer Wanda Snell said she saw the black and brown pet go still after being injected with a needle last month.
But when Ms Snell arrived for work the next day she saw the animal standing in an outside pen, albeit looking unsteady on his paws.
Staff are not sure how he survived.
Ozark police Captain Bobby Blankenship, who supervises the city shelter, said: "He was injected with the right amount of medication that should have had him go to sleep.
"Unfortunately, or actually fortunately for everybody else, here he was."
He now has a new reason to wag his tail: after the shelter posted his story on Facebook, Lazarus found a new home in the Alabama city of Birmingham.

This is the sad world we live in. Dosent only apply to aminals , money makes the world go round, and obviously love is expressed in currency, and if your ignorant of this fact im sorry. Ive been left in relationships just because of money.thankfully thats all she had on me, and i overcame these difficultys. Low and behold who comes around again. What a pathetic existance when we have the technology to serve all needs without a market without a dog eat dog world.( and its no wonder we get ebola from eating our relatives cannalbilsim if you ask me) so i sit, at random bars because i work all over the country, and i drink usually a double of beam and coke. I dont say much but i have alot to say, others always try to pick up the lonely broke bar maids, honestly i just feel sad. What wonderful world , glad this dog found a home. Sorry for the rant.

ATS really does need a pets forum.
Mutts are the best, but I do so enjoy hanging out with a stoic, stealthy German Shepherd on occasion.
