Dog Buried for 2 Weeks and Lives

The Scoop: Dog Buried Alive and Lives to Bark About It

I know what an awful feeling it is to know that your pet has gone missing. With a recent study showing that only 71 percent of lost dogs are recovered, I can tell you that this is one lucky pup! Billy, a resilient Jack Russell, found himself stuck in a grave for two weeks after chasing a rabbit down a collapsing hole in an Australian cemetery. Having looked everywhere for him, his family had given up hope of ever finding their furry family member, figuring he'd been bitten by a rattlesnake that are common on the Australian countryside.

But with a stroke of good luck, he was found after his barks called attention to his location and he was set free unharmed, only hungry and dehydrated. The family learned, however, that old dogs really don't learn new tricks: “When we took him back to the cemetery this week we had to hold on to him or he would have been back down the hole. To him, it’s a big game.” Hopefully, Billy will eventually learn his lesson!

I wonder will he chase a rabbit again? Or will he think twice.
