Miracle Dog Survives Poisoning, Burial

PARIS (October 19, 2012)--A Jack Russell terrier named Ethan survived after being poisoned and buried alive thanks to a man who saw the ground wiggle.

In fact, Ethan had a whole chain of saviors including a 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, 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.
