HALIFAX - A Halifax police officer has once again had to break a vehicle window to save a dog.

Halifax Regional Police say officers responded to the Costco in Dartmouth Crossing at 12:30 p.m. Sunday and found a small dog in a truck with the windows slightly open.

The officer felt the dog’s health “was in jeopardy,” and smashed the truck’s rear window.

The dog was placed in an air-conditioned police cruiser until the owner could be located.

According to a release, the dog was returned to its owner, who was advised of the dangers of leaving animals in vehicles on hot days.
