Once again, neglect and pure selfishness have nearly cost a little pup its life.
Time and time again, we’re reminded not to leave our pups unattended in parked cars – and especially not during the summer months.
But despite this, we keep hearing stories about careless people doing just that and putting their defenceless pups in danger.
This time, a sweet little pup had to be saved from certain death while his reckless owner was enjoying a nice meal at a nearby restaurant.
A South Euclid police officer noticed the pup while out on patrol.
The officer saw that a small white dog was frantically trying to get out through a car window, and walked over to investigate.
When the officer looked into the car, he realized that the dog was all alone.
Outside, the temperature had hit 86 degrees, which meant that the heat inside the car must have been completely unbearable.
If the pup wasn’t taken out of the car soon, it would surely die from heat exhaustion.
The officer quickly pulled the dog out through the window and gave the hot and heavily panting pup some water.
The little dog gulped down the water and was incredibly grateful to the officer for saving his life.
The officer then waited with the pup until the owner, a 62-year old woman, finally returned; apparently, she’d been off having a meal at a nearby restaurant.
On June 30, 2020 at 4:14 PM an officer on patrol observed a small white dog attempting to jump out of a car at Petsmart, 13919 Cedar Rd. The vehicle was not occupied by a human, and the current temperature was 86 degrees. The officer ran the license plate of the vehicle, and attempted to locate the owner. Unable to do so, the officer removed the dog from the window and it immediately began “chugging” water, according to the police report. A short time later the dogs owner, a 62 year old Cleveland woman, emerged from a nearby restaurant. She was charged with Cruelty to Animals.On a side note, Happy 4th of July South Euclid!!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

We’re happy to report that the woman was held accountable for the way she treated her poor dog and was charged with Cruelty to Animals.
It’s so important to send a strong message to all people that neglecting and harming animals is simply not okay, and will not be tolerated.
We’re very happy that the sweet little pup got out okay and got to experience some real kindness.
People are incredibly grateful to the heroic officer and relieved he was there to help.
