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."
