A chocolate Labrador had to take matters into his own paws near Allantown, PA.
When left in a hot car, 11-year-old Max began honking the horn for help, local TV station WFMZ reported.
After taking Max for a drive while she did errands, Donna Gardner said she returned home and went in the house, forgetting man’s best friend was in the car with her.
About an hour later, she heard a car horn and she went outside. She didn’t see anyone, so she went back inside.
Then the horn blew again and Gardner went outside to see her beloved pet at her car’s steering wheel.
“I rushed over and got him out real fast and he was panting like crazy,” she told the television station. They called a vet who said Max would be fine after some water and cool towels.
