A dog spent up to six days trapped inside a car without food and water before he was rescued by the Seattle Police Department on Sunday.

Security guards spotted a pug-beagle mix frightened and shaking inside the back of a car early Sunday morning and called 911 for help. One of the guards told the police that he believes the car had been parked in the same spot for over six days.

The owner of the car was unknown as it had been recently sold to a new unlisted owner. Police called for a tow truck and rescued the dog from the car. The security officers gave the dog food and water before she was handed over to the Seattle Animal Shelter.

The dog, named Zipper, was apparently in the care of the owner’s boyfriend. The owner is out of state currently. At this time there are no charges pending against the individual who left Zipper in the car.
