Deputies in Sarasota County rescued a 16-year-old blind dog locked in a car.



Deputies Stacy Brandau and Luke Sniegowski responded to a 911 call after a woman accidentally locked her dog in the car for more than 45 minutes. She called authorities asking deputies to smash out her window.

Upon arrival, they used special tools to unlock her car rather than smashing the window and rescued the dog.

Deputy Sniegowski rehydrated the dog with water from his own bottle after getting him out.

The dog, owner and deputies are all doing well!
