Police Find Newborn Puppy Buried Alive

Police made a startling discovery last week after they were court ordered to destroy evidence in a wooded area of town – a still breathing 7-day old newborn puppy buried alive in a shallow grave in the woods.

“They heard a whimpering sound, like a crying animal behind them,” Williston Police Chief, Dennis Strow told TODAY.com. “They went to explore it and figured out it was coming from below.” Police speculate that the puppy, a male who is so young that his eyes are still not opened, had been buried less than an hour before the discovery.

Luckily, whomever buried the puppy head-first about 6-inches below the surface, didn’t pack down the soil and he was still able to breathe due to a pocket of air around his tiny head.

The newborn was quickly rushed to Levy Animal Clinic, where he was given the name Tucker and has been receiving care ever since.

Caretakers at Levy Animal Clinic are bottle-feeding the newborn pup and tell reporters he is doing extremely well. He’s even found a loving new home with one of the veterinary technicians!

Meanwhile, police are still trying to locate the person responsible for the newborn puppy’s brush with death.
