French dog poisoned and buried alive survives

PARIS (AP) — A Jack Russell terrier has survived after being poisoned and buried alive — and he can thank the man who saw the ground wiggle.

Ethan had a whole chain of saviors: the man who dug him up, firefighters and a veterinarian who nursed him back to life.

Sabrina Zamora, president of an animal association in Charleville-Mezieres, 200 kilometers (125 miles) north of Paris, said Friday the little dog was "flat as a pancake" Tuesday when he was dug up from his grave.

Veterinarian Philippe Michon called the rescue "miraculous" — saying that Ethan's cold body was so compressed from being buried it was hard to find a vein to hydrate him.

Ethan was identified through a microchip that showed all this happened on his third birthday.
