9 Puppies Rescued by Their Mother After They’re Buried Alive
A dog owner who didn’t want a litter of nine puppies allegedly buried them alive, but their mother rescued them the next day by digging them out of their 2-foot-deep grave.
All nine survived, and the veterinarian caring for the mother and squirming, sightless puppies has received 25 adoption offers. The puppies are a Rottweiler-chow-Labrador mix, and most are black and tan.
Prosecutors will decide whether to file charges. The owner could be charged with aggravated animal abuse. The owner admitted burying the puppies because he didn’t want them, said Sheriff’s Sgt. Sherry Schlueter. “He doesn’t believe in spaying or neutering, but he does believe in burying his dogs alive and killing them,” she said.
