A Virginia man says he doesn’t regret shattering a car window to release a puppy from the hot vehicle.
When he saw the dog, he contacted 911,
but he thought they were taking too long, thankfully Jason Minson recorded everything himself.
Minson, a landscaper, was investigating a tree in a Norfolk yard when he heard a crash.
He checked out the noise and discovered a car had hit a parked automobile. Minson found a dog when he checked the parked car.
He thinks the crash roused the panting puppy.
“It was the kind of panting that was the last effort a dog does to try to cool himself off,” Minson, who also has a Great Dane, told The Dodo.
He dialed 911 and was informed police were on the way.
That shouldn’t take long.
Each minute, the creature seemed to struggle more.
It was like a countdown, and Jason couldn’t do anything.
After calling the police,
Animal Control arrived 20 minutes later. Minson claimed the dog drank two water bottles while his owner was missing:
