Someone had left this elderly dog to pass away all alone behind a pile of mud and stones in an appalling act of animal cruelty. Despite that heinous effort, which reflected the worst of humanity, human goodness has triumphed.
Pedro Dinis was walking his dog near his home in the outskirts of Paris, France, when he discovered the horrible discovery that neither he nor anyone else was supposed to witness. A pitiful creature clinging to life – a dog buried alive – lay off the usual route.
Dinis stated on Facebook that he was “in the right position at the right moment to save a life,” adding that “just her head was visible and it was tough to see considering the amount of soil covering her.”
Dinis moved immediately to release the ailing dog from her burial.
Dinis’ walking dog even helped out with the rescue.
It was became apparent that whomever had placed the animal there had not done so thinking she was passed away. Not only was the dog buried up to her neck, but she was also tied with a rope to prevent her from fleeing.
Dinis slowly but steadily freed the dog from the ground, using his water to help her back from the brink of passing away.
The dog was taken to an animal hospital and is being treated for dehydration and distress. The dog’s life is no longer in jeopardy, according to reports.
It could have been difficult to find the individual guilty for this heinous deed if the dog hadn’t been carrying one crucial clue. According to Le Parisian, police officers discovered a tattoo on her body that led them to her owner, who claimed the dog had gone away. Given the dog’s age and arthritis, officials felt that explanation was “not very feasible,” and the owner was charged with animal cruelty.
