Police officers have probably heard it all, but a Georgia Sheriff was served a new story when he rescued a dog from a hot car the other day. According to Fox 6 Now, Sheriff Sgt. Partain responded to a call about a dog locked in a car, rescued the pup, and went to look for the owner.
The car’s driver was highly intoxicated, and claimed the dog had driven him to the store to buy corn. Supposedly the pooch waited patiently to drive him back home again. The man was arrested and has been charged with animal cruelty as well as driving under the influence, and the dog is resting with animal control.
Moral of the story? Police officers do not give points for creativity. And, as comical as this story might seem, don’t leave pets or children in cars.
