How To Identify Heat Stroke in Dogs


Whether a dog is left inside a car or left outside, warm temperatures can pose a danger to any dog. Even if a dog has a shady spot and water, if the temperature gets too warm, or the dog gets overheated, he or she can still suffer from heat stroke and die.

That happened to Courtney Rogers when she took her dogs including French Bulldog, Henry, on a walk. The day had been warm, tipping at 30 degrees (86 F) so she waited until evening. She made sure to check to see the pavement was cool enough for them to walk on and brought a doggy water bottle. But despite the precautions, Henry still got in trouble.

“We took them on our usual walk in the evening when it had cooled down a bit, along with a bottle of water for them both to drink when they needed it. About halfway through our walk, Henry started panting, like he usually does anyway because of his breed, but it got progressively worse,” she wrote. “After having large drinks from his water, the panting only got worse, to the point were his chest was rattling, and he was plonking himself down in any shade he could find, refusing to move.”

She rushed him to the vet but despite every attempt to save his life, a few hours later Henry was dead, overwhelmed by the heat. She shared her story in the hopes of saving other dogs’ lives.

Warm weather put a strain on a dog’s ability to regulate their internal temperature. As result, dogs can get heat exhaustion quickly, especially if walking or running.

Stray Dog Leads Rescuers To Her Friend So She Can Be Saved Too


When the South African rescue group Sidewalk Specials rescued a senior street dog named “Kettle” from Hout Bay Harbour in Cape Town he was in rough shape, but they managed to find him a home. Then they found out Kettle had a sister, and decided they needed to find her and bring her home to their shelter.

Luckily, they found her but the stray dog wouldn’t go with them, despite their gentle coaxing and offer of food. She wanted to show them something instead. They followed after her and, there, behind a car, was a second dog. She was shivering and covered in ticks and in dire need of help too. The female dog did not want to leave her friend behind

So instead of rescuing one dog, they rescued two, even though they were strapped for resources and did not have a home for either. A short time later? Watch how all the Hout Bay Harbour rescues are doing now!

If you are wondering about Bruno, who you see in the second video, he had been abandoned by his owners and left to fend for himself on the street. But he is sure doing better now! I’m so glad Gracie and Hope got to stay together! All three Harbour Dogs (Kettle, Gracie, Hope) and Bruno have found loving homes. You can’t ask for a better happy ending than that!
