Filling it in shouldn't be a problem. A bag of topsoil should do the trick. The problem will be to keep him(her) from doing it again.
Young dogs with too much energy often start this. They are left fenced in a back yard and become bored. You really need to nip this in the bud before it becomes a bad habit.

Anytime we would run into this with one of our dogs, we would pack in a mix of crushed concrete and dirt, to keep the dog from doing it again, packing it as we would fill the void. Last four to six inches would just be plain fill dirt. Problem with bags of topsoil, is that the dirt is not good for filling, and will dry out over time, and become washed out as it rains.
Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?

Would building a dog run for Fido in the backyard help you think? Is the dog left for long periods of time so he/she gets bored as suggested? Is he digging after something he sees or smells like a mole or something or just being creative from the get go on his own?

I am assuming taxidermy is not yet an option?
