BARSTOW, Calif. – A California Highway Patrol (CHP) officer stopped when he saw a vehicle that seemed to be unoccupied off of the 15 freeway in the Barstow area on Monday morning.
When he looked inside the vehicle he saw a dog left unattended in the vehicle, with no owner in sight. Temperatures were already around 80 degrees when the dog was located. CHP Officer Hernandez was able to get into the vehicle and rescue the dog before the temperatures became anymore dangerous.
Officer Hernandez will be doing follow up to find the owner of the vehicle and take appropriate enforcement action, CHP officials said.
