Call it a second lease on life. A Quad Cities puppy is looking for his forever home after a few shorts months of life and a story to tell.

In a Facebook post, Kings Harvest Pet Rescue shared the story of Rudolph, an seven to eight month old puppy.

His journey begins with life, death and a second chance.

A number of the people comment on the post are expressing interest in adopting the puppy. Kings Harvest is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyday except Sunday and Thursday if you'd like to add you name to the list.
