Miraculous Rescue! Dying Chihuahua in Critical Condition Rescued from 123-Degree Hot Car in Time For a Second Chance at Life

Pedro the Chihuahua mix was rescued from a sweltering car parked outside Walmart in 123-degree heat. Colorado's Lakeside Police Department broke open the window to save Pedro, who was in critical condition after struggling to breathe. He was rushed to Wheat Ridge Animal Medical Center and then moved to Foothills Animal Shelter. His body temperature is now normal, but he's being monitored for secondary effects of heatstroke. Despite attracting numerous potential adopters, Pedro is not available for adoption as his owner faces an animal cruelty charge. Leaving pets in cars can be dangerous, even for a few minutes.
