Dog Survives Euthanasia; Will Be Put Up for Adoption
By H. Wicai, KWMU
St. Louis, MO – He faced the gas chamber and lived. A one-and-a-half-year-old red chow-besinji mix was herded into the chamber with other strays to be euthanized Tuesday at the St. Louis animal control center.
But when the process was over Quentin was still alive. Animal control didn't have the heart to gas the dog again so they turned him over to Stray Rescue of St. Louis, a no-kill shelter run by Randy Grim.
He's amazing. He's a little timid. But he's already coming around. But he's really sweet and absolutely beautiful. I stare in his eyes and I'm like, wow, you're the miracle dog, Grim said.
After a visit to the vet and a lot of tender lovin' care, Quentin should be ready for adoption.
