TENAFLY, N.J. — Police rescued a dog locked in a hot car just before 1 p.m. Monday after a hairstylist nearby called to report she was concerned for the dog’s safety.
Robin Urman said the dog was locked in a black Mercedes SUV with the windows rolled up on Washington Street. When an officers arrived, the English Bulldog was experiencing some distress. The officer used a lockout tool to open the door and let the dog out.
“I gave her water, put water on her neck and on her feet,” said Urman, who is also the CEO of Pet ResQ Inc.
She said that the dog had been in the car for at least 40 minutes from the time she spotted it to when the owner walked out of the nearby drugstore.
Police said the 50-year-old woman who owns the dog was cited or issued a summons at the scene.
