Dogs Trust is relieved to hear the story of a young boy who saved a dog who was trapped inside his owners car on a hot day.

With warmer weather on the horizon, Dogs Trust wants to remind everyone that they should never leave their dog in a parked car, even for a few minutes. Even if it seems cool outside, a parked car can become very hot, very quickly and under 20 minutes in a hot car can prove fatal to a dog.

If you see a dog in distress in a parked car, please call the Police on 999.

Dogs Trust has top tips to make sure that you and your dog can stay safe this Summer.
