The unnamed witness told Somerset Live: ‘I could hear the dog crying and howling and I could see the window was only cracked open a little bit.
Early summer weather in Britain has seen temperatures soar throughout the country. The distressed dog was in a car outside a Sainsbury’s in Sherborne, Dorset.
The dog was wide-eyed and trying to stick his nose outside the cracked window, at one point clamping his teeth down on top of it.
Multiple announcements were made through the Sainsbury’s Public Address system. After 20 minutes the distressed dog’s owner returned and let him out of the car.
They reminded people to call 999 (the UK’s 911) to report a dog in a hot car to police.
