Police in New Jersey have rescued a Bullldog which was locked in a hot car, after the owner left her there and went shopping, with the car windows rolled all the way up.
Fifi the English Bulldog was left in the car in Tenafly, New Jersey, on Monday. Fortunately, Robyn Urman, who owns a business nearby, noticed the dog and called 911.
Urman, a hairstylist, was alerted by some of her customers that a dog seemed to be in a predicament and went out to see if she could do something about it. (Scroll down for the video.)
1. Fifi was locked inside this SUV in Tenafly, New Jersey, on Monday, with temperatures in the vehicle believed to have exceeded 100 degrees.
2. Local business owner Robyn Urman was able to call the police.
Urman told ABC News:
The dog was within five minutes of passing out in the passenger seat. The windows weren’t cracked at all and that car had to be more than 100 degrees.
Urman asked in nearby stores if anyone owned the black Mercedes SUV in which Fifi was locked, but could not locate the owner.
3. Passersby also came to the aid of Fifi as the police arrived at the scene at Tenafly.
4. New Jersey cops were able to rescue Fifi, who was locked in a hot car while the owner went shopping.
She told ABC News:
Lucky for that dog, the cops showed up quickly when I called 911. The cop noticed how in distressed Fifi was and was able to unlock the door.
Urman then gave Fifi some water and comforted the canine. She says that it was about 40 minutes after first noticing that Fifi was unattended when she finally found the owner, who came out of a CVS store.
5. Robyn Urman owns a local hair salon and was told about the dog by customers. She rushed to help.
Urman told ABC News:
She came out screaming for me to not touch her dog and she blamed me for it all.
She said she had been watching Fifi from the store windows the whole time. The CVS actually has blacked out windows, so that wasn’t possible.
Police did not issue a ticket to the owner at the scene, however they are still investigating.
