The municipal police in Bridgewater transported a small dog to a local veterinarian for examination after law enforcement were notified Friday about a pooch alone in vehicle in the LaHave Street mall parking lot on a day when the humidex bordered on 40 degrees C.

Authorities were told the animal was in a white Buick vehicle that had New Brunswick plates.

An officer retrieved Fido via an unlocked door and placed the dog in his marked police car with the air-conditioning going full throttle.

The dog, conscious and breathing, was later transferred to a second police car, which took the animal to the vet.

More to come.
