I can't believe that because the vehicle was locked, authorities were not allowed to enter it?!?! What if there had been a child in the car....would they have left it there because it was locked?? So glad Kia is going to make it..G-D makes up for others mistakes and ignorance!

Ditto Barb. I can't understand why authorities were not allowed to open the car if they knew the dog was in there. I am pretty sure there is a law in my state that if you see a child or animal in a closed locked car you can call the police to open it or open it yourself without breaking the law.

Shame on the owner for not at least reporting that the puppy was in there! It's miraculous that Kia survived. I'm so happy he made it! Adorable pup!

I watched this on the news this morning. That is one precious little fighter! Good thing it rained or she would not have made it. Can you imagine living off of old cigars and a leftover McDonald's bag? Noted, thanks Barb!

Someone should make a petition to allow the entry of a towed vehicle by authorities if there is a living creature inside of the car.

I think the owner of the car should have some type of charges laid against him for not stating a dog was in the car. Poor little thing, it's absolutely amazing she survived. Noted, thanks Barb.

Cieszę się, że piesek został uratowany, ale co z nieodpowiedzialnym właścicielem i jeszcze bardziej nieodpowiedzialnymi władzami, wstyd mi za nich, czy poniosą odpowiedzialność?
