Default Stolen truck with dog inside

Hey TBH... There was a truck stolen from someone in my neighborhood. Normally, I probably wouldn't care as much; trucks are stolen all the time. This is a bit different and really ****** me off.

This truck had a dog inside. They care about the dog and want the dog back. Now I know finding a dog is a needle in a hay stack, but the trucks rims are a bit unique, so maybe there's a chance we could help.

I know probably won't happen, but since there's a dog involved, I am going to try. It was stolen at the Northeast Mall in Hurst yesterday.

That is horrible, there is a guy in San Antonio same deal except he paid a ransom to get the dog back like $10,000 if memory serves
I pray that the dog is safely found

Sadly the people left the dog locked up in the truck while shopping for over a hour, sad stuff

Yeah - I'm not a dog owner but to me that's questionable. I get it was a beautiful day and they were in a parking garage...still...

Hanging out inside a High Country leather truck in 75-80 degrees isn't exactly cruel ... While I can completely understand the locked up in the sun, windows up, summer issue, sometimes there is zero issue with leaving a trained dog in a locked vehicle.

There is nothing wrong with leaving a dog in a car in fair weather. As long as heat isn't an issue it's no different than kenneling one up. On the other hand, what a crappy watchdog.

That's awful. They should be glad my Lab Duke wasn't in the back seat. They would still be picking up pieces of the pricks to broke into the truck.

I leave my truck running with my dog in all the time in the summer(Doors locked and keys with me). I have always said that if someone has the balls to get in my truck with my pit that they can have it. That said if someone took my truck/dog I would be devastated and would do anything to get her back, they can keep the truck. I will keep an eye out for that truck.

My Ex FIL got a ticket for doing exactly that, but it wasn't in Texas. I think he was in Kansas. I guarantee NO ONE would have been able to get in his van and drive off with his malinois, and he left keys in and a/c running. That dog liked me, and I wouldn't risk getting in that van first. I would have been funny watching some thief try it though. She didn't bother wasting time on a warning bark.

Law in Texas says that it is unlawful to leave a vehicle running unattended with the key in the ignition. I don't do this since mine is a push start and the key is in my pocket, but they could still give me a hard time if they wanted to I guess.

I used to have a male Chessie and would do the same thing.

Left a dog in cool fair conditions in the car with the sunroof open in Austin,Tx. Came back to about ten 16-17 year old girls surrounding my car threatening to have charges pressed against me. One of my first odd experiences in Austin.

My guess is they used the dog to get the door unlocked. I went into the convenience store one time and my dog locked me out of truck. I had to walk back and forth from passenger to driver side calling till she finally unlocked it and let me back in!

I hate taking my truck to a mall or big box stores.

If I do I try like !@#$ to park right near the entrance.

I too have my dog in the truck sometimes and would be devastated if she got stolen.

No. I asked them, "What time did this happen?" and they said "Don't know."

So don't lose any sleep over this. Thought I'd do someone a favor and they won't even help me help them.

If the windows are partially rolled down I'd be inclined to agree with you. But 70-80 degrees outside equates to roughly 115-125 degrees inside after an hour. Its easy to forget how quickly vehicles heat up even in "mild" temps.

Sorry to hear about the truck owners & dog. Hopefully they recover both.
