Dighton resident left puppy in freezing car for nearly an hour

In Dartmouth, Massachusetts, a man from Dighton is accused of leaving his puppy in a freezing car for nearly an hour. When the Dartmouth Police officer arrived at the North Dartmouth Mall, he saw the puppy in the back seat of the vehicle curled up and shivering.

According to WhdhNews, the person who reported the puppy left in the unheated car, stated the animal had been there for at least 20 minutes. By the time officers were able to rescue the puppy, it had been nearly an hour. Temperatures have registered in the single digits and rise only to the teens during the day.

The puppy was taken to an area veterinarian for a medical examination and is being cared for at Dartmouth Animal Control. The puppy’s owner has not been named.

Pet owners are being warned not to leave animals outdoors in these subzero temperatures. Did the owner of this puppy think the car temperature wouldn’t plunge while sitting in a parking lot without the engine running to supply heat?

    Oh come on! Name the fool that thinks it’s ok to leave a puppy in a cold care in single digit weather! I take it they confiscated the pup and let the owner go on their merry way? Good work Dartmouth Police officer, but I guess at least the pup is safe for now until one of you geniuses give the pup back to this moron!

    This is scary to me, these are the people that will be running our country eventually and they DON’T THINK? I’m glad the puppy was rescued.

    WHAT!!! This person who reported the puppy just stood around and waited for the idiot cops to show up an hour later??? No way, they SHOULD have broken the damn window, taken the puppy and never bothered to call the cops since it sure was not a priority to them. And they won’t even release the maggot shit of an owner’s name – and he will probably get this little puppy back to they can abuse it some more. The owner’s name should be made public and their picture posted in every shelter and rescue in the state. This asshole has the brains of a rock.
