For a half hour, while a man enjoyed a meal with his family inside of an air-conditioned restaurant in Lawrenceville, Georgia, a puppy was left to suffer inside of a hot SUV. According to WSB-TV Atlanta, a good Samaritan summoned the police who had to break out a window to the vehicle to save the puppy from dying from heat stroke.
The puppy’s owner, identified as Freddy Dorantes, is now facing a charge of animal cruelty and he has been detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The puppy, who was taken to an air-conditioned area by the responding officer, is now at the local animal control.
The pup will be held until the courts determine ownership.
