Update: DeKalb County Fire Rescue, Georgia Animal Rights and Protection, veterinary office staff, and other members of the community are now going door-to-door to distribute more than 20,000 fliers at area homes and businesses.
To aid the search further, PETA has also made the fliers available as printable posters here so that people can post them in businesses, in schools, in recreation centers, on community bulletin boards, and anywhere else where they’re welcome.
Someone out there must recognize this dog, and the whole community is counting on that person to come forward so that whoever buried Lulu can be stopped from hurting anyone else. PETA is eager to help concerned residents get these posters out there in hopes of bringing this dog’s abuser to justice.

The case of Lulu—the dog who was discovered on the evening of Tuesday, June 6, buried alive up to her nose in Tucker—remains unsolved, so PETA is now doubling our reward and offering up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction on cruelty charges of the person or persons responsible for this crime.

DeKalb County resident Eric Purdue found Lulu on an ATV trail near Rock Mountain Boulevard and Lewis Road, where she may have been left for several days. He dug her out of the dirt and took the brown chow mix to receive emergency veterinary care, but despite veterinarians’ efforts to save her, she died.

Someone must know where this dog came from and who buried her alive, leaving her to suffer in terror for days. PETA is urging anyone with information about this dog or her tormenter to come forward immediately, before anyone else gets hurt.
PETA advises families to keep their animal companions safely indoors and never leave them unattended outside, where they may be taken or hurt by cruel people. Dogs should always be accompanied in the backyard and escorted on walks on a comfortable, secure harness and leash.
