In a heartwarming act of kindness, firefighter Mike Thawley rescued a sick Pit Bull named Chunkie who was left tied up in the rain. He took her to an animal shelter for care, and upon his return the next day, Chunkie was visibly happy to see him. Although it's illegal to leave dogs outside in the cold for extended periods in many states, some outdoor dogs can have a safe place to stay during winter storms. It's important to protect our furry friends by providing them shelter and warmth. Overall, dogs should not be left outside in freezing conditions, as they are not built to withstand it.
