A rescue dog was left for dead in a Kentucky parking lot, but after being picked up by a shelter, the puppy made a full recovery and is now working as a beer taste tester.
“We checked out a lot of great candidates for the Chief Tasting Officer, but we have finally found our front runner,” wrote Busch in a Facebook post. “In less than four months it came from someone’s burden, from someone’s afterthought, and not only survived but flourished and is now recognized nationally.”
Ethan has made great strides since he was found in a Kentucky parking lot a few months ago. But rescuers at a local animal shelter took him in and helped him regain his strengths.
“OUR BABY HAS TAKEN HIS FIRST STEPS! While wobbly and learning to use his legs again, this is great progress and deserves celebration,” the Kentucky Humane Society said in a February statement.
“Less than a week ago he was at death’s door and now he can finally walk a little. Thank you to everyone who supports Ethan and his recovery! Your support made this amazing moment possible!”

Ethan spent a few days in the hospital but has made progress over the past few months and has regained most of his weight. He also found a new home forever.
“The dog beer is made from vegetables, herbs, spices, water and pork broth to provide your best buddy with a nutritious and tasty snack that helps promote a healthy digestive system,” the brewery writes in a description. “Bone broth is also a great way for dogs who are struggling to consume solid foods in order to get all of their extra nutrients. Your best friend will love it.”
As part of the new job, Ethan will receive an annual salary of $ 20,000, health and stock options, and free dog brewing.
The shelter is still trying to find out how Ethan ended up in a parking lot.
