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
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?

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.
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.

Are you nuts?!?! that car is freezing! how would you like it!? that could be considered animal cruelty and im taking it as that! if you do that somebody will find you and call the cops and i hope they do! you sick person! and why would you want to!? thats not even anything that would come to my mind! EVER!!!!!!!! so you are a sicotic person and should die in a hole alone!
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!
