The dog has been found buried up to its head in dirt in France, with the photos of the incident sparking an out pour of anger on social media.
Police have confirmed that the owner of the dog has been taken into custody, who said his dog had run away.
The French mastiff was discovered and then rescued on Saturday by Pedro Dinis walking his own dog on waste ground in Carrieres-sur-Seine, west of Paris.
Deeply upset by the dog’s appalling condition, Mr Dinis posted pictures on Facebook saying:
‘Only her head was visible and it was difficult to see given the amount of earth covering her.’
The French mastiff appears to have been buried in the thick dirt and dust in the waste land.
The dog’s rope lead can be seen hanging from her neck and closer inspection shows that it has been attached to a sack of gravel.
Mr Dinis called the emergency services and began to free the animal, carefully trying to ease the thick pile of dirt surrounding the dog.
The dog, ‘shocked and dehydrated’ according to the police source, was taken to a veterinary clinic nearby for treatment.
Police quickly traced the animal to its 21-year-old owner who was taken into custody.
He denied burying the dog, saying that the animal had run away.
Investigators said this was ‘not very plausible’ and are expected to further question the young man.
‘The dog is more than 10-years-old and suffers from arthritis. It’s difficult to imagine her running away,’ said a source close to the investigation.
The owner will be put on trial for animal cruelty and could be sent to prison for two years and be forced to pay a fine of up to £20,000.
