This Man Saw A Dog Locked In A Sweltering Car And Knew Just What He Had To Do…Ashley Maisano
During a music festival in Grand Bend, Ontario, the announcer mentioned that there was a dog left in a hot car and for the owner to let it out. After a while, no one came forward and the dog was stuck without water in the sweltering car.
The temperature was nearly 90 degrees Fahrenheit out, which means it was even hotter in the car. Since no one came to let the dog out, one man took matters into his own hands…literally. He grabbed a giant rock and started smashing it on the window of the BMW that the dog was in. After a few tries, he finally broke the window and was able to get the dog out.
Out came this tiny, adorable, energetic pup. He seemed so relieved to finally be out of that car. They said the dog was wet from sweating so much and felt sweltering. This man likely saved this dog’s life! After, they called the police who then took custody of the dog. It wasn’t until 50 minutes after the rescue that the owners showed up.
Leaving a dog in a hot car is never okay. According to the Humane Society, when it’s 72 degrees Fahrenheit outside, the temperature inside your car can heat up to 116 degrees Fahrenheit within an hour. When it’s 80 degrees outside, the temperature inside your car can heat up to 99 degrees within 10 minutes. Rolling down the windows has been shown to have little effect on the temperature inside a car.
