The Humane Society of the United States announced Thursday a reward of as much as $2,500 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case of a dog found buried alive in West Pensacola.

"This is an unusual case of animal cruelty -- being buried alive," said Jen Hobgood, program coordinator at the society's Tallahassee office. "We wanted to do everything we could to assist in the case."

The bull-mastiff mix was found Jan. 14 in the backyard of a home in the 7700 block of West Jackson Street.

"We are at a standstill with the case," said Sgt. Mike Ward, spokesman for the Escambia County Sheriff's Office. "We are still investigating."

The dog is improving and remains at the Safe Harbor Animal Hospital in Pensacola, said Bruce Rova, director of Escambia County Animal Regulation and Control.

If you have information on the case, call the Sheriff's Office at 436-9620.
