AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - An animal rights group is offering a reward for information about a 4-month-old puppy who was buried alive.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says the dog, nicknamed Moxie, is recovering at a foster home. The group says it is offering up to $5,000 for information that leads to arrest and conviction of anyone responsible.

The mixed-breed puppy was found this month in Augusta trying to dig its way out of the ground. The dog’s injuries included swelling on its head and several ant bites. A veterinarian reported that the dog initially could not stand and struggled to eat and drink.
