Time was quickly running out for this pup left in a hot car in an Albuquerque, New Mexico, parking lot. Thankfully, a kindhearted couple came to the rescue. According to Gerasimos Klonis, who broke the car’s window with a crowbar to get the dog out, the dog was “sticking its snout out of a 1- to 2-inch crack trying to breathe.” Although he called 911 twice, he knew authorities most likely would not arrive in time to save the dog. “The longer I waited, the more I was thinking about this moral dilemma to myself, the more the answer became obvious to me because the dog was in clear distress,” he shared. The owner of the pup now faces an animal cruelty charge.
