Samantha Heaver, who recorded the clip, before sharing it to Facebook, reveals that the dog was left inside the car for 45 minutes while the owner left for shopping with her younger daughter.

In the video, it could be seen people are concerned and swarming around the car while the man continues to hit with an axe in an effort to smash the window and in his eighth attempt is successful and a man can be heard to say: "That's done it. That's enough."

A woman asks: "Where's the dog? Where's the dog? Jesus Christ. That poor little dog."

Someone else adds: "At least it will get some air and won't die in there," before the woman responds: "It don't look b****y great."

A Thames Valley Police spokesman told the Sun: "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."

The RSCPA explains multiple times the dangers of leaving animals in a hot car in this weather. This dog was lucky that it was saved by passersby but this is not the case for all the animals. So, please be careful next time before leaving your pet animals behind in the car.
