A puppy, left unattended in a car while his owners dined on lunch, choked to death on a leash after trying to jump out of an open window. According to the Daily Voice, the tragic incident took place on Saturday in Stamford, Connecticut, not far from the Dinosaur Bar-B-Que.

The pup’s owners had rolled down the car’s windows, left a bowl of water, and secured their puppy to a rear seat before leaving – though the car was not found to be particularly hot (animal control officers tested and found out that the car’s interior temperature was 65 degrees), the pup still tried to escape and was hanged by the leash in the process.

Concerned passersby called the Stamford Police after seeing the puppy hanging from the window – though two officers rushed to the scene, it was too late. No word on whether or not the puppy’s owners will face any citations or charges.

    WHAT! Concerned passersby called the Stamford Police after seeing the puppy hanging from the window – though two officers rushed to the scene, it was too late…………………….
    why didn’t the concerned passersby help the puppy? Why didn’t they go over to the car and pick up the puppy???? are you kidding???? they probably could have saved him!!!

      It’s Connecticut. I am from Chicago and have lived in CT for 28 years and so many people here are nasty. They only care about themselves and are not friendly at all.

    Poor precious little treasure probably was terrified and panicked at being left alone…..
    I don’t understand why people drive everywhere with their dogs???
    It’s one thing for a day @ the beach and quite another for “errands” (most places don’t want pets in them….. grocery stores, restaurants, drugstores)…..

    How stupid can you be?

    If you leave your pet unattended in a car– AND WHY THE HELL WOULD YOU EVER, EVER DO THAT????— you do NOT leave the pet in the car with the window rolled down enough for the pet to jump out!!!!!

    If you are NOT going to take your pet with you wherever you go when you take your pet with you: leave him or her at home!!!!!

    Why wouldn’t they charge these idiots for killing their puppy? THEY DID! It takes an IDIOT to do what they did! They could have eaten someplace where they could have taken their puppy, or simply left the youngster at home, which was the RESPONSIBLE thing to do.

    Puppies and dogs aren’t ornaments nor attachments. Leave them home unless you have a legitimate reason for bringing them with you!

    Imbeciles to leave the puppy on a leash. If anything have it restrained in a doggie seat where it can’t get out, but then, why subject this scared pup to being left alone. Leave him at home. I know it is hard and it is for most pet owners to leave their fur babies home alone, but at least he will be alive when you come home

    Tragic and TOTALLY PREVENTABLE! Praying that the two barbeque-lovers don’t have children and won’t be adopting any more pets.

    I am with the first comment where a passer by reports seeing the pup hanging out the window and by the time police arrive it was too late, So why does passer by wait for police to rescue the pup. Also why can’t people leave their pets at home? And this is the 2nd incident I have read today. The first one happened when a couples bulldog was stolen when they left him in the car And They are So Thankful to have him Back. They Are Lucky to have him Back. And I doubt either of these couples and the passer by that watched this pup die Learned Anything

    IF I was the pup hanging out of a car window I would have helped the pup first and then called the police. Why did the people just stand around and wait for the police???

    You go out to lunch you don’t need to take your puppy with you just to sit in a hot car. This whole thing could have been avoided. That poor puppy died because of a couple of morons, I hope their lunch was worth their puppy’s life! They need to face charges, this was neglect!

    The owners should be banned for life owning pets; also register as animal abusers for life. They showed proof that they got no common sense, plus rolled down window tempts anyone to steal. I’m very angry…wishing them dead, but God will never forgive me.

    Another example of humans with the common sense of a damn doorknob. This includes the so called ‘concerned’ passerby who called the cops but apparently did nothing to help this puppy. Those idiot owners want to go to lunch LEAVE your dog at home – imbeciles. This little dog died due to brain dead human beings whose first and only concern was for themselves. You are ALL responsible for the death of a puppy.

    OMG!!! This Sickens Me to the very depth of My Soul!!! The picture they used was of a Dachshund too! How very well I know the determination and stubborn mind set of these little guys!!! They will go to the end of God’s Green Earth to Get What they Want!!! Usually it is their person!!!

    Fuckin inbred maggot idiots. And these are the kind who are breeding AND voting. God help us. That previous pup deserved so much more.
