Veteran knowingly breaks the law to save an overheated puppy locked in a hot car
It’s never easy to do anything when it’s hot and humid as hell. Not everyone has air conditioning to keep them cool when it’s hot. Most of us have to opt for basic electric fans and shorts.
Imagine currently residing in this heat with a full coat of hair. Yeah, not so simple, is it?
Our four-legged and furry companions are the most sensitive people in the summer. All they can do is pant and drink water to stay cool. It’s not hard to understand why we’re always told not to keep them in cars when it’s hot.
Well, it seems we need to remind people a little more.
Jason Minson, a Virginia resident, once walked by a very hot car and truck with a very scared and also very hot dog inside.
It was unclear how long the owner had been gone, or when he would return.
What was clear was that the canine had been there far too long.
Judging by his panting and restless gait.
Jason is an Army CSI, and his day job is as a landscaper. His days aren’t usually this stressful or intriguing. In fact, he had just discovered the dog in the car after another vehicle almost hit them.
He approached to check it out and was confronted with the sight of this pet dog panting for its life.
He called 911 for help and was told that the police were on their way to help.
Hopefully, it won’t take too long.
Yet, with each passing minute, the animal seemed to be in more and more trouble. It seemed like a countdown was underway, and Jason couldn’t stand by and do nothing.
He gave the dog water, which might have helped a little. He consumed every last drop of alcohol. After that, Jason offered him another container, and the dog consumed it as if he hadn’t had a whole bottle before. He was an extremely thirsty dog and also very, very hot.
Help has not yet arrived, and the dog’s problem does not seem to be getting any better.
It seemed that the water was only delaying the worst of it instead of preventing it, and something had to be done.
The police informed Jason not to break the windows of the vehicle. He didn’t really agree, but that was many minutes ago. After realizing the dog was severely dehydrated and not wanting to wait any longer, he finally relented and broke the vehicle window.
The animal was out, and Jason could relax a bit.
Of course, breaking the windows of a car or truck is not normally a way to relieve stress, but a life was at stake here.
He can rest now.
He did the right thing after all. The law is pretty clear about breaking car windows to keep endangered animals inside. This means that Jason will not be charged with criminal activity.
The same cannot be said for the owner of the car and the dog who left the poor dog inside. As for the animal, it was treated at a veterinary care center.
Obviously, it had not been returned to its former owner.
Never leave your pets inside the car in hot weather! That coat of fur is much hotter than it looks, and panting has only a limited effect. Don’t wait for someone to come and break your car window while you’re away.
