There are far too many accounts of dogs left in hot cars each year.
Despite the fact that dogs are extremely prone to heat stroke, far too many owners continue to leave them in hot, enclosed vehicles, which can cause distress or even death.
One of the most shocking cases occurred last summer: an imposing canine was found left in a hot vehicle outside a Las Vegas gambling club with her mouth taped shut.
The dog, thankfully, made it through the ordeal and is now living her best life months later.
The husky puppy, who was three months old at the time, was locked in an SUV in the Bellagio casino parking lot on July 20 when the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department was called to the scene.
Temperatures reached up to 113 degrees, and electrical tape had been used to seal the poor dog’s mouth.
It can be difficult to lock a dog in a car in any weather, so you can imagine how awful it was for the husky in such hot weather—her life was in serious danger.
According to police, the dog had been there without air conditioning, food, or water for two hours while its owner was inside a gambling establishment.
The dog was able to be removed from the car’s sunroof by the LVMPD. The dog was found salivating and unable to breathe, according to bodycam footage that was shared by the department.
The owner, 50-year-old Raul Carbajal, was taken into custody for torturing an animal with intent. Even though the incident was shocking, the poor animal’s life soon improved.
The Animal Foundation, based in Las Vegas, made the announcement that the husky, now known as Duchess, had been adopted several weeks after it had been rescued.
Additionally, Duchess has been living her best life ever since being rescued, according to a recent update from the shelter.
Animal Foundation wrote, “She lives with a wonderful family who adores her.” She enjoys spending time with her new fur siblings by sneaking into the children’s beds.
Duchess was abused and neglected by her previous owner, but her new family is completely different. Duchess has traveled throughout Nevada, California, and Arizona, giving her a chance to see the country.
Duchess enjoys the cold after being rescued from that scorching hot car: It is said that she never misses an opportunity to play in the snow.
The Animal Foundation wrote, “Talk about a good life.” We are overjoyed that Duchess has been saved from a terrible situation and placed in a truly beautiful new home, and that things have turned out so well for her.
I’m grateful that you showed this adorable dog the love she deserved! Kindly spread this sweet tale!
