Man Saves Puppy In Car

April Livingston | May 8th, 2019

A man named Jason Minson is an Army veteran who runs a landscaping company in Virginia. He was out doing his job one day and performing a tree inspection when a series of strange events completely changed his entire day. He was looking at the tree when he suddenly heard a loud crash on the street. When he ran over to see what had happened, he realized that a car driving by had bumped into a parked car on the street. As he got closer, he realized things were not what they seemed at first. Not only was the car damaged, but there was someone inside. That someone was a dog.

Not only that, but it was a black Labrador puppy that was inside the car and it seemed the noise and bump of the accident woke him up. Jason realized the dog was very hot—it was a really warm day outside—and he was panting heavily. A dog owner and lover himself, he realized the dog was desperately trying to cool himself off. He did what any dog lover would do: he called 911 to report the incident. While on the phone with the dispatcher, he was told that it was a crime in his state to break the window to free the dog.

While he was waiting for police to arrive, Jason grabbed some water. He opened the first bottle and gave it to the dog through the partially cracked window. Then, the dog drank a second bottle. The animal control officer then arrived and tried to get the door open without any luck. So, Jason realized he need to act: it had been 20 minutes since he found the dog and it had laid back down and stopped panting. He knew it was in danger, so he broke the window. The animal control officer then rushed the puppy to the vet, where he is recovering well from the incident. Best of all, Jason wasn’t charged for his heroism that day.
