A Fresno police captain is caring for a poodle that was found locked inside a stolen car.
The stolen vehicle was parked at 5th and Clay, near Olive Avenue.
When officers got there, they saw the little dog motionless on the floor.
They broke into the car and were able to revive him.
Beth Caffrey with the Central California SPCA is using this as a reminder of how dangerous it is to leave a pet inside an unattended car, even if it's just for a few minutes. "Well the problem is people don't realize how fast it gets so hot inside the car. They can think that they're just going to stop at the store and grab a soda and within the couple of minutes that they're inside, the temperature can go up 20 degrees," said Caffrey.
The Fresno Police Department is now looking for a permanent home for the dog.
