A man out walking on Tuesday heard faint whimpering sounds in the area of Saint-Paul d’Abbotsford located in southwest Montreal and went in search of the sounds. And what he found was shocking! According to Monteregie SPCA  inspector, Linda Robertson, the man saw a paw sticking out of the ground as the dirt moved beside it; a dog had been buried alive.

According to, the man pushed the dirt away and found the male bull mastiff still breathing and very much alive. He called 911, and officers rushed to the area and helped dig the dog out of his grave; a blanket had been wrapped around him.

“We’re thinking they thought the dog was dead (when they buried it),” Robertson stated.

The dog has been taken to a veterinary hospital in Chambly where he is listed in stable but critical condition. It is believed he may have been strangled and struck with a blunt object before being buried. As of Tuesday evening, the pup was awake but still not able to stand.

Authorities are now investigating to find out what happened to the dog and to identify his owner.

“I’ve been doing this 28 years, and this is the first time I’ve heard of a dog being buried alive,” Robertson said.

The person who found the dog said he doesn’t always take that same path when he walks, and had he not been at that spot on Tuesday when he found the dog, chances are he would not have gone that way for days. By then the dog probably would have died. Anyone with information is asked to call the Monteregie SPCA at 450. 460.2779.
