No worries.....a friend asked me this question so I brought it here to see if others shared my opinion as you clearly do. We have a pug and we would never leave him. And I live in Florida so I promise its not me.

Whatever echoes....I was looking for opinions for a friend who might have it as a court case. There hotel did not allow pets. I am not covering for anyone as I had the same reaction as most our. But others said its fine because some pets are left outside all the time.

That pup needs a new home. Please find a home for it and then kidnap the little thing. If it doesn't end up dead this time, it will next time.

Hi, Fran. Honey, I love animals SOOOO much. There's no way I would do that at all. It could cause hypothermia. No way I'd risk it. DON'T.

I agree with the others...leaving a puppy is like leaving a baby...what's the reason for wanting to leave a puppy in a car? Will you be with the puppy?

A possible court case just getting opinions. People had the dog and the hotel did not allow pets. We have a pug who is our boy and we would never leave him.

You don't need to be rude.....I'm looking for opinions for a possible court case. You can relax we have a pug and live in SW Florida and would never leave him.

I'm not being rude you're the 1 who wants to leave an animal in the car in just a little over freezing weather shame on you

and by the way your question was can I leave a puppy in the freezing car

Now she is asking regarding a court case for a different dog? With all due respect, that's not the comment she left me. Again, with all due respect I stand by my post.

I like the fire in your eyes echoes !!!!

echooos, I posted my answer to her question asking about "her" puppy and got a comment back from her. Then after everyone answered as they did she changed her story that she was asking "for a friend" however, again, her question asks about "her" puppy and that is not the comment she left me that she was asking for a possible court case. I hope this clears up any confusion. I found her question rather upsetting however, I posted my opinion respectfully and stood by it after the comment she left me. Enjoy your weekend.

Your cruel to animals. It will die. It is not okay because it will need water and if it doesnt have it, its dead. And he can freeze to death.

yes, because if you didn't have some water one night. you would just die of thirst.
Report as
Thats true. Also your car will stink because of the pups bathroom time.

Apparently, you are not a responsible pet owner and shouldn't have a six-month old puppy or any pet for that matter. I am being as respectful as I possibly can however, if you can even consider this act, I feel so very sad for your dog as he/she grows. Why don't you stay in your car in 33 degrees overnight and then decide. smh

I'm a very responsible pet owner and love him as a child. I'm asking to get opinions only. Depending on how close to Naples you live you can stop by and see our pug who is just as content/happy and nice as he can be.
Report as
I was being respectful. I am a staunch advocate against animal cruelty. I live in Florida. However, you stated you love your puppy so why would you even think to let "your baby" freeze in 33 degree weather? I stand by my post.

I am certain he will not be content and happy being let outside in the cold.

Give it a blanket to curl up in, don't listen to these people, so many people keep dogs outside year round without even any straw or anything in the dog house, some don't even get a house, that is cruel. It would have to be a lot colder than that to harm him

Aw! No you can't. Puppies at that if not being taken care of by humans are naturally still with their mothers, and would at least have them to keep warm on cold nights, taking them away from their mother (even if he's six months old) and leaving him in a car in the freezing cold with no other animals to stay warm with is cruel.

That is far too cold for an animal that has been primarily keep inside. He doesn't have the benefit of a heavier more coarse winter coat like animals that are temporized to colder temperatures out doors.

Could YOU sleep in the car in that temperature overnight .. with nothing but a single blanket to curl up in? If YOU couldn't without finding it unbearably uncomfortable, then neither would he.

.. further .. how do you know that the temperature would be 33 degrees? Have you factored in windchill?

If it's a last resort .. then you have to offer him some method of staying warm inside this enclosure much like you would with ANY enclosure. If he's a puppy that has never be left alone .. he could freek out and chew up the interior of the car..of which, would HE should not be held responsible for.

There are so many factors involved when caring for a pet .. his temperment, his ability to stay warm, his comfort level .. You will just have to use some common sense to decide how to treat this scenario.

No! That's pet abuse. If you can't take care of your puppy properly, you shouldn't have a dog in the first place. You wouldn't want to sleep in a car overnight that is 33 degrees

I'm sorry for so much hatred toward you for even asking this question. Some people seem to assume you automatically know the answer to this question and are just cruel for considering leaving your dog outside; at least it would be out of the wind and it would be dry. The best place for your dog is inside the house with a blanket to lay on. If the alternative is to leave it outside with no shelter, then by all means leave it in the car with a couple of blankets--that would be better than just outside. The best solution if you have no better shelter, is leave your baby in a large travel kennel (the dog should be able to at least stand up and turn around) that has several blankets in it, wrap it (the kennel) in a couple of blankets to hold in the body heat, and don't leave it out any longer than absolutely necessary. Thank you for asking this question so you can make a reasoned decision about your baby dog.

With all due respect, I do not "hate", exhibit "hatred" toward others and the word "hate" is not a part of my vocabulary. If you read all the comments you will see she started backpedaling. Her question posted indicated "my" dog... Then in her comments, she claimed something different. In my opinion, I don't think people were "hating", everyone felt bad for this baby puppy. Enjoy your day.

I stand by my post. I always wonder about people who claim to love animals and then show such hatred towards their fellow humans. "strong dislike or ill will"
Report as
I certainly don't think folks on here were being hateful.....instead most were displaying their distaste for someone who would remotely ask such a question. Common knowledge is you just don't place a pup in the cold. Animal lovers are passionate, loving individuals who defend such innocent pets. If you feel the need to stand by your post-go for it. I stand by mine as well.

It is not a good idea. THe ability for a young dog to retain heat is more difficult than an older dog that has built up a hefty layer of fat and muscle. This may also create a sense of abandonment as well. Many things are wrong with this type of situation and is best to avoid it at all costs.

That is technically considered Animal Cruelty, and if you are caught you may never be allowed to own an animal ever again. Why do you need to leave the dog in the car? That's much too cold for a puppy or any dog unless the car is on and heat is running all night long. Aside from that, why not take the poor thing inside?

No. If in fact your truly serious and didn't know the answer prior to asking.....then please know that this is in fact a horrible idea. Do you live in your car? If that's the case-please have warm blankets for both you & pup. If not, please don't lock your pup in the car.....someone will surely report you. Good luck friend!
