An Animal Control officer was shocked when he discovered a one-year-old dog buried up to its neck in a creek in the metro Atlanta, Georgia area. On Sunday, the discovery of the dog and a few of the details of the heartbreaking story were posted on the Facebook page of the Two Tailz Rescue, located in Roswell, stating the dog was “buried in mud in a creek submerged up to his head unable to move.”

The dog, dubbed “Moses,” is a Labrador retriever and pit bull mix who weighs approximately 60 pounds and was discovered by the officer on July 15. Fortunately, the officer was able to free the dog from his murky would be grave and brought him to Animal Control for care. Moses suffers from demodex mange, bacterial and fungal infections, eye infections and stomach troubles. 

The rescue organization has asked for the public’s help in finding a foster home for Moses. It is extremely important he find a temporary home or an adopter because he cannot go into boarding due to his health issues. At this time, Moses needs to rest, get lots of attention and have someone available to administer his medications. His conditions are not contagious; he is described as extremely sweet, very trusting and very friendly. Please share this dog’s plight with friends, family and social media contacts.

“Our founder went to visit Moses today. His spirit was definitely lifted. He is such a sweet boy. He met another dog, and he definitely wanted to play …it was very sweet. The other dog was not sure about Moses, so it was a quick interaction,” the group posted on their Facebook.

What makes this case even more concerning is this is the second dog involved in a similar incident recorded last month. In June, a man discovered a chow mix that had also been buried alive off a trail in Tucker. Sadly, that dog did not survive.

    Sending prayers to this adorable pup, Krama to the low life ass hole who did this to him, hope who ever did it has no peace in his mind, heart ans soul for the rest of his life and nightmare for the rest of his life.

    How in the world could any human being be so cruel??? When the POS who did this is found he should be given the same fate. Let him know the fear and terror this poor dog suffered. Karma.

    Some humans are just cruel and heartless to bury a dog alive. Whoever buried this dog is a real sick POS who needs to be found and thrown in jail for a long time. Better yet, bury the POS in an ant hill and let the ants torture this low life.

    Thank God Moses was rescued -NOW – PLEASE some kindhearted person in the Atlanta area needs to step up and give Moses the foster home he so desperately needs – he is an innocent animal who was so cruelly treated and deserves all the love and kindness that someone will give him. AND to the bastard who did this – may you be found lying helpless and in severe pain under a filthy bridge and no one cares.

    I read about this dog earlier on another site,and it was determined that this wasn’t done by a human,they think he got stuck! BUT rescuers were upset that people around the area heard this baby crying and not one person investigated what was crying or where the cries were coming from! Isn’t Moses beautiful? So very relieved he was found and rescued! If I could take on another dog I’d love to have him,sweet loving boy!!
