A pug puppy is alive today thanks to a cop who jumped into action after finding the pup in distress inside of a parked car in Corpus Christi. As reported by KRISTV News, the officer spotted a struggling puppy inside of a vehicle parked at the Water’s Edge Park on Saturday afternoon – the temperature at the time was nearly 100 degrees.
The officer called out for a company to open the car’s locks, but it was so hot that the decision was made to break out a window before the puppy suffered any further harm inside of the sweltering vehicle. The four-month-old puppy was pulled to safety and the owner was eventually found.
The puppy’s owner is facing a charge for abandoning and neglecting an animal.
Never leave a pet inside of a parked car on even a moderately warm day – cracked windows do little to nothing to help cool the car’s interior and your dog (or cat) can suffer irreparable harm in a short period of time. If you see a pet inside of a parked car, please reach out to the authorities for assistance and stay with the vehicle until help arrives.
