Puppy abandoned, almost dies from heat

vbeachpuppyA teen riding their bike came to the rescue of an abandoned puppy just in time to save its life. Veterinarians believe if the dog had been left out in the heat for 15 more minutes it likely would have died from heat stroke.

The teen was riding their bike in Virginia Beach, Virginia when they spotted a boxer-Chihuahua mix puppy in a crate at Oceana Park. The teen took the puppy to the Beach Pet Hospital where it was given the water, food and treatment it needed.

“In this kind of heat today, you cannot leave animals out in the car, out in the park, and this little fella was basically abandoned,” said Annette Still of Pet Guardian Pet Services. “I know people stress over taking an animal to a shelter, but they really would be safer. There’s air-conditioning there, there’s food and water. Had this little fella been left out there any longer, even another 15 minutes, he would have probably had heat stroke and died.”

The puppy is doing well and will be up for adoption soon through Pet Guardian Pet Services.

  1. I truly want 10 minutes with the dick that let this pup- I promise you will pray for a death by heat stroke because it would much more pleasing than what I have in store, you douche!

  2. KUDOS for the teen that saved this pup, Hero in my book!

    Sad that there are still people out there that have such disrespect for life. Hopefully there is a special place in hell for the preson who did this.
