In Hallandale, Florida, a vehicle stolen with a dog inside has been found; the tiny dog was found dead. The SUV was stolen from the Big Easy Casino earlier this month. His owner had been in the casino and left the dog in the car with the motor running.

According to Local10News, the small dog had been abandoned in the Ford Escape by the thief – the windows were closed and the engine was off. The vehicle was found about a mile from the casino. Temperatures in South Florida that day had soared into the 80s. The little guy’s name was Bootsie.

Patricia Frances, the dog’s owner described Bootsie as her best friend.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954.493.TIPS. A $3,000 reward has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible. The suspect has been described as a man in his 20s or 30s with long dreadlocks.

Don’t ever leave your pet unattended in a vehicle. Sure, he might give you those sad eyes when you leave, but he will be alive and happy to see you when you return.

  1. Why does someone go to a casino and leave their dog in the car outside? Leave the dog home! You are just begging for something like this to happen when you don’t use your head! Rest in peace little Bootsie, humans let you down big time!

  2. I absolutely love my furbabies (equine and canine, no felines right now ???). However, they all stay home when Mom (me) runs errands. They prefer their snuggly blankets, have fresh food and water….. the car is NOT comfortable for them. They do not enjoy car rides!!!
