Veteran Sees Puppy Dying In Hot Car And Breaks The Law To Save Him

A Virginia veteran named Jason Minson was on his way to work when the sound of two vehicles colliding attracted his attention. As Jason went in to investigate, he noticed a distressed dog trapped in a hot car, panting incessantly and begging for help.

Jason’s immediate response was to call 911. The dispatch unit set on course but warned Jason that it would be unlawful for him to smash the car window himself. Jason stood by the car and offered the dog some water through the tiny window opening.

The dehydrated dog gulped in two bottles of water, but the heat was getting to him fast. Soon, the delirious and suffocating dog started losing balance. There was still no sign of the emergency responders, so Jason made the brave decision to bust the car window and save the dog!

When the police finally arrived, they took the dog in for emergency care and then placed him in a local shelter. The person responsible for leaving the dog in the car has been charged. Thankfully, Jason avoided charges for his timely life-saving act!
