I’m with you. Living in the deep south there’s no excuse and no reason to have one’s dog(s) sitting in the car while errands are run. Leave them at home. They are safe and cool there and will be waiting for family’s return! Hoping that poor GSD survived. People are just selfish and stupid. Why try to “negotiate” temperature? Just leave the animals at home when you can’t take them with you! Good grief!!
The GSD survived just fine.
I don’t know, however, what happened to the *owner*, whether the cops arrested him later or what.
I made sure the dog was taken care of.
