10 Year Old Dog Survives Being Buried Alive!

Running a website has many benefits. Benefits, as well as heartbreak, joy and huge learning experiences. I am always online searching for different stories, doing research on a dog behavior, or checking out dog products. In doing so, I often come across a ton of rescue stories. Some have happy endings, some don't. This one does have a happy ending, but a very skeptical story at best. You be the judge.


This is Athena. Her discovery was both horrific, yet amazing. What I mean by that is, Athena was discovered by a man named Pedra Dinis, as he was walking his own dog through the Paris suburbs.

What he saw, was a dirt like "avalanche" with a dog's head poking out of it. Immediately, Dinis began digging the dog out of the dirt, with his bare hands. While this may have seemed like an accidental dirt avalanche which just so happened to claim a dog... turned out to be a very curious situation. Why? Dinis discovered that the dog appeared to be tied with a rope to that area.


The questions then become... 

Was the dog tied there while the owner had to run into a store? Was the dog tied there while the owner had to run somewhere for some reason? And it was a sheer accident that somehow this dirt "avalanche" happened to fall on top of the tied down dog?? 

Some may think so... however the next discovery is what leads me to believe, that this was no accident. You see, Athena had tattoo identification on her, which in turn, led the investigators straight to the owners house.

What happened next?

The owners "claimed" that the dog had run away, and they had no clue where she was. 
So that brings my mind to these questions: was the dog stolen? Some scum bag stole the dog, tied her, and attempted to bury her alive? Or was this the owners way of getting rid of this beautiful dog?
Of course, the police were skeptical as well, and charges were being filed. I thought this was the end of the story, UNTIL I read the last update...

Latest update:  Police have discovered who buried this dog, and the person will be appearing in court in March of 2016. This still leaves me wondering, who on earth did this? Was it the owners who had been discovered, or were they telling the truth, and some sick individual stole their dog, and committed this horrific crime? I for one, would like to know! I will continue this research, and I will update you all when and if I find the answers. 

Either way, I am extremely thrilled the dog was saved. According to Care2.com, and animal advocate, Virginie Nollot, "Athena is doing much better now, she's in the good hands of a french pets assosication."


The Sibe Tribe would love to know:
What are your thoughts on this?
Without knowing details as of yet, what would your best guess be, as to what happened here?




Before you go, there was a little issue with my guest post at 4Knines.com going live last Friday. It is up and running now, and could use some comment love if you have a moment, please head on over and check it out, thanks!

  2. When we read this story originally and saw the photo of poor Athena up to her neck buried in dirt we thought it was beyond hideous. She survived amazingly thank heavens someone saw her and rescued her.......but it seems that animal cruelty knows no bounds doesn't it. Just when you think you've seen the WORST in human behavior toward animals it gets worse. So happy Athena is recovering. It's quite a story.........we hope the person responsible is suitably punished.

    1. I know, it's truly horrid. I did not want to post those pics of her buried like that. I thought it would be better to post her happy face after she was rescued by that amazing man!

  3. Now that is an awful, yet wonderful story. I guess we will never really know unless the dog starts to talk.

  5. Hopefully they'll get to the bottom of what happened to Athena. You're right, this story is both heartbreaking and wonderful.

  6. Oh, thank goodness someone found her. I can't imagine who could do such a horrible thing. It will be interesting to find out who is getting charged. I suppose I'd rather think it was some sick stranger than the dogs' actual family, but you have to wonder if they were even looking for the "lost" dog...that might be a clue.

  9. If the dog was stolen or ran away, why wouldn't the owners get it back?
