In Tucker, Georgia a resident walking along a trail found a dog buried in the ground; she was still alive! Eric Purdue stated it took nearly a half-hour to dig her out on Tuesday evening when he just by chance spotted the Chow Chow’s head sticking out of a hole.
According to WsbtvNews, Purdue said the dog had been buried so tightly in the ground, she was not able to move and that when he found her, she had been covered in ants:
“This dirt, I mean, it was packed in. It was ridiculous. Somebody took a lot of time to do a terrible thing,” Eric told the news station as he described nearly stepping on the dog and coming close to driving over he in his truck.
When he reached out for help with the dog, he later named Lulu, Lifetime Animal Project took the dog to a nearby veterinarian for emergency treatment. Tragically, Lulu died a short time lager despite the vet’s best efforts to help her. Eric and his family had been so emotionally moved by Lulu’s plight, they had planned to adopt her if she had survived.
Purdue believes the dog may have been buried alive on Saturday, and had it not been for the cooler weather she would have died. DeKalb Animal Services is asking for the public’s help in identifying the dog and/or her owners.

Rest in peace Lulu. We are so sorry that humans were so cruel to you.
