Dog Days of Summer can be hazardous for dogs

Despite common sense and a local ordinance, law enforcement gets a few emergency calls each week from people worried after seeing a dog left inside a car while its owner runs an errand. Sometimes people do not realize how quickly the inside of a car will register extreme heat after a car is parked and turned off on a Summer day. WUFT-TV’s Catherine Awasthi reports.
