According to reports, the pooch was left inside the car at New Bury Retail Park.

Heaver said that the dog was left alone for around 45 minutes as the owner of the dog went shopping with her younger daughter.
A couple of PCSO that were at the retail park rushed to the scene after getting to know about the incident.
The dog was eventually removed from the car and was brought to a local vet to get checked.
A spokesman of the Thames Valley Police said:
A member of the public did smash a car window to get a dog out of a car. Two of our PCSOs attended, the dog was taken by one of the PCSOs for a check over. The owner of the vehicle returned and was given advice.
Please stop leaving your dog’s inside your vehicles.
