Dog buried alive now in stable condition


MONTREAL – An injured dog found buried alive on Montreal’s South Shore appears to be in stable condition as the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals investigates what happened to the animal.

The Monteregie SPCA says the dog, a Boxer, was extremely dehydrated when it was first brought in for care Tuesday and couldn’t even lift its head.

The organization says the dog managed to do just that this morning and is showing other signs of improvement.

It says the dog seems to have sensation in its legs, meaning it may not be paralyzed from a severe neck injury as the organization feared.

The SPCA is investigating and is asking for the public’s help in finding out what happened.
