Dog Found Buried Alive on Beach, Missing 90 Percent of Her Fur


This dog survived being buried alive! Yes, someone buried this dog alive on a beach in Hawaii. This is almost impossible for me to wrap my mind around. At least this story has a happy ending. 

Animal rescuers at PAWS of Hawaii saved this badly injured dog and discovered that over 90 percent of her fur was missing. She has a foster family that took her in and the video below is of Leialoha, slowly recovering. 

The original post which we included below says this poor dog was buried by someone that also had a machete on their person so I'm afraid to think of what might have happened to her.

There is a link on their Facebook page where you can donate (there is an update that says they raised enough money but let's donate anyway since they likely could use additional funds for others animals like this dog) to her medical care.

What she needs now is a forever home! Sounds like there may be interest already from a local family. Apply anyway! Please watch this wonderful video the rescue group posted.

? Leialoha Update ?Her first tail wag! Caught on camera ? Litte Leialoha is still a bit hesitant and shy, given all she?s gone through. But the improvements are consistent and just breathtaking. She wagged her tail and is coming out of her shell more each and every day! This beautiful baby is in a wonderful foster home. She has received adoption inquiries from all around the world. What a blessing to see that so many people love and care for this precious girl. We are very happy to say she has a wonderful family from Hawai?i (Big Island) interested in giving her a forever home once she?s healing up. We are truly glad that she was saved in time. She received wonderful veterinary care through Aloha Affordable Veterinary Services. Her foster ohana is outstanding. The prayers she has been receiving are helping her blossom. Mahalo Ke AKUA!

Leialoha needs you....This beautiful girl was found by one of our team members. Someone had just buried her and they...

This animal rescue (and foster family) should be called heroes for saving this precious girl from such a terrible fate. The dog Leialoha is a true survivor. The sick person that did this should be in jail.


The veterinary clinic should also be called heroes for bringing this poor dog back to life. The idea that she was burned to the point where she lost 90 percent of her fur is horrible. The Hawaii beach is supposed to be a beautiful, pristine place so what happened here?

Animal rescue groups Like PAWS of Hawaii need more donations! This poor girl is just an example of the daily cases of abuse these rescues deal with all the time.


Thank you to the good samaritan that found this dog in this state and called in experts right away.
