For many of us, summertime seems like the most important season to be concerned about a dog's well-being while they're out in the elements. After all, animal abuse isn't just people who physically harm their pups themselves; it's also people who don't care enough to keep their dogs out of harm's way.
Every year we hear more and more stories of these poor pups being left to suffer inside unbearably hot cars by neglectful owners who simply don't care about their pet's health. Or, the dogs are left out in the hot sun with no water, no shelter, and no way of cooling themselves down.
But as we slowly start moving towards the colder months, these sweet doggos face another environmental threat: the harsh temperatures of winter. And some owners just don't think about just how cold a dog can get when they stick them outside on a leash for hours. Or, they just don't care.
