In Hollywood, Florida, police officers responded to an animal neglect response in the 1800 block of Rodman Street on the morning of June 19. When Hollywood Police Department officers arrived, they found a dead, brindle pittie type terrier lying motionless on the floorboard of a truck.

According to AbcNews, the owner of the dog, Sasha Koval, 27, was arrested on Friday, July 7. She is alleged to have told authorities she had left the dog in the car and found it dead after she woke up the next afternoon. She had placed the dog in her vehicle the night before when she went to work on the night shift and had no place to leave the dog. There had been no food or water left for the dog. Records indicated Koval is homeless and that she had borrowed her boyfriend’s truck.

Police stated the dog had been left alone in the vehicle for about 20 hours. That day, outside temperatures in Hollywood soared to a high of 91.4 degrees with nighttime temperatures reaching the low of 73.4 degrees, according to the Weather Channel.

Even though the outside temperature may have dropped to the low 70s, the interior of the vehicle could have reached 100 degrees in less than 20 minutes.

Koval has been charged with aggravated animal cruelty and has been released from the Broward County Jail. If found guilty, she could face up to five years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.

Rest in peace poor pup.
