DeKalb County Police are still searching for the culprit responsible for the June 6 incident, when a good Samaritan discovered the dog buried up to her nose and rushed to her aid, bringing her to Lifeline at DeKalb County Animal Services.

It's possible the dog may have been buried for days.

Saturday, Boy Scout troop members helped canvass the DeKalb County area for information, handing out fliers notifying the public of the reward increase. 

The organization People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals recently increased its reward to $10,000, and a volunteer donated an additional $500 for the cause.

The Humane Society of the United States still has a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.

"This didn't need to happen. As a Boy Scout, it's our job to job to help find and help provide service to help find the person who did this to this dog," said scout Joshua Jones.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the DeKalb County Police department at 404-294-2939.
