Unnamed Belgian MalinoisPosted: March 20, 2012
On May 5, another police Belgian Malinois died after being left inside an Alameda officer’s personal sport utility vehicle as the officer attended a use-of-force training exercise.
After several hours, the officer returned to his vehicle – which had at least one window down for ventilation – and found his dog near death. The dog died at a veterinary hospital. The officer was not charged.
Never leave a dog alone in a vehicle.
