Family Discovers ‘Euthanized’ Dog Alive in a Shelter


Last fall, the Coates family of Farmington, Utah, made the difficult decision to have their dog Zoey, who had been suffering from seizures, euthanized after discovering a large mass on her side, KSL reported.

On November 29, 2016, Tawny Coates, Zoey’s owner, asked her father to do what she could not: take Zoey to Bayview Animal Hospital in Farmington to be euthanized.

Six months later, while searching for a rescue boxer to replace Zoey, the Coates’ learned the shocking revelation that their dog had never been euthanized, but was very much alive at a rescue home for boxers. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
