Kelowna RCMP find furry friend ‘McPuggerson’ in hot car

RCMP remind public that your pup would rather stay home than in a hot vehicle

Kelowna RCMP found and rescued a new initiate for the RCMP Police Dog Section in a hot car Aug 8.

Unfortunately, the pug who was aptly named McPuggerson by Cst. Robyn Boffy did not pass the tests to become a permanent member of the force.

After being found in distress, the pup was cleared by a local vet and turned over to RDCO Animal Control Services.

The RCMP remind the public that a hot car is no place for a pet, especially with the 35 C temperatures the Okanagan has been seeing this week.
