When you see a dog locked in a car in this weather, it’s usually a bad thing. But not this bulldog, who was enjoying the air-conditioned comfort of the driver’s seat of a work truck on Green Street.
The truck’s engines were running and the windows were rolled up, so I surmise the AC was cranking.
But this is high season for dogs-left-in-car deaths. So follow this advice from the JP-based Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Items include that if you do see a dog locked in a car on a hot day:
- Locate the owner as quickly as possible. If the car is parked at a store, ask a store employee to page the owner.
- If the owner cannot be found quickly, call the police to free the animal from the car.
