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.
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.
