It is a common misconception that dogs are naturally equipped to handle extreme weather conditions due to their thick fur and heritage. However, the reality is that even the toughest dogs can suffer in harsh weather.
One day, a dog was left outside in -20 degree weather by its owner while they went into a post office, mistakenly believing they would only be gone for a few minutes.
The unfortunate dog could have developed frostbite or become ill from the cold weather, but a stranger found him just in time.
The man sat beside the shivering dog, and the dog snuggled up to him to get some warmth. The kind stranger stayed with the dog until the woman came out of the post office. This story highlights the fact that leaving dogs outside in severe weather conditions can be fatal.
