Family's unbelievable response after dog saved from hot car during heatwave.

A heat wave, or heatwave, is a period of excessively hot weather, which may be accompanied by high humidity, especially in oceanic climate countries. While definitions vary, a heat wave is usually measured relative to the usual weather in the area and relative to normal temperatures for the season. Temperatures that people from a hotter climate consider normal can be called a heat wave in a cooler area if they are outside the normal climate pattern for that area.
Heatwave: Family's response after dog saved from hot car

The owners of a little dog trapped for hours in a hot car during a heatwave have had an unbelievable reaction after police saved their pooch.

Charles Cross Police Team, based in Plymouth in England’s southwest, were called to rescue a dog on Wednesday (local time).

“Another dog left in the sun, another window smashed,” police tweeted.

“This little guy was alone for over three hours. If you love your furry friends, please think. He was very happy to be set free.”

The dog might have been pleased to have been freed from the hot car.

But his owners certainly weren’t impressed.

Police community support officer Tracy Cunningham told the Metro the family just returned to the car after police had smashed the window.

“They weren’t happy with us because their window was put in,” she said.

They had to be spoken to via an interpreter who explained the dangers of leaving animals in hot cars.

The RSPCA examined the dog and released it back to the family.

On Thursday, Public Health England issued a warning about rising temperatures.

Frank Saunders, Chief Meteorologist at the Met Office said in a statement “there is a real possibility” of not just July but all-time records being broken this week.

The term is applied both to hot weather variations and to extraordinary spells of hot which may occur only once a century. Severe heat waves have caused catastrophic crop failures, thousands of deaths from hyperthermia, and widespread power outages due to increased use of air conditioning. A heat wave is considered extreme weather, and a danger because heat and sunlight may overheat the human body. Heat waves can usually be detected using forecasting instruments so that a warning call can be issued.
