chilly dog in bus shelter back with family thanks to quick thinking
\"He is as scared as the cold,\" said Darren Saab, a transport service official, who eventually waited with dogs until the Regina Humane Association (RHS)arrived.
After a passenger named RHS found the dog, the bus driver contacted dispatch, which was also called Szabo.
Szabo is already on the way. he is heading to the bus shelter.
Szabo said, \"I looked inside and there was a dog shivering on the ground . \" He tried to keep the dog warm with his own wool jacket.
\"I threw it to him at the beginning because he was a little growling at the beginning.
Then he said, well, this man is here to help . \"
After some trust, he was able to wrap his jacket tightly around the dog.
RHS staff arrived about 10 minutes later.
The German Shepherd combo was named Baclava by RHS until his master found his true identity after calling him.
\"Dogs are not common to go missing, so they quickly noticed that he was missing and called us,\" said RHS operations director Lindsay West . \".
Baclava was monitored for freezing injuries but did not appear to have suffered any cold-related injuries or diseases but was sent home with his master.
West says RHS\'s recent calls have increased slightly due to the extreme cold in the province.
\"If we get a call at an address that belongs to people about the animals outside, then the animal protection officer will go out and have a look and talk to the owner,\" West said . \".
Sometimes there\'s no real reason to worry at the end, she says, but in situations where any animal seems to be in danger, transplant is important.
\"Animal protection officers will deal with these complaints and they will go out and make sure everything is OK,\" West said . \".
\"If you know that hosts may need to be educated about when and how to leave their animals outside, then officials will do the same.
If the animals are too cold, they will give you some signs, including lifting their claws and shaking, she said.
At the current temperature, pets should usually only be released to the bathroom and brought back to it, West said.
The larger breed of dogs in good fur coats may be happy for longer, but should be readily accessible to the sanctuary and closely monitored by the owner. “(Owners)
\"I need to understand cats and dogs, they also suffer in the cold like humans,\" she said . \".
\"If they stay outdoors for a long time, they will also suffer from diseases such as freezing injuries.
West said anyone who sees an seemingly unattended pet left outside is encouraged to contact the RHS.
