TUCKER, GA (AP) -

The reward has grown to $10,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction following the death of a dog hours after being buried up to her nose in the ground near Atlanta.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals on Monday announced the new amount.

Last month, Eric Purdue rescued the Chow Chow mix in Tucker. Purdue named her Lulu, and had found the dog buried alive in tightly packed ground on an all-terrain vehicle trail.

Officials believe she may have been left there for three days. Perdue believes rain and overcast weather was Lulu's saving grace during that time. The dog later died, despite efforts by veterinarians to save it.

PETA officials say they're hopeful someone will come forward with information so that whoever is responsible can be held accountable.
