Don't Drive with the Windows Down
Kirksville, MO - It seems you can't get away from pit bulls regardless of the task at hand, including driving a vehicle. You can't take out the trash, fetch the paper, get the mail, garden in your yard, walk your pet, take a jog or drive your car. Stephen Shaw was driving his two-door Mercury with the windows down when the pit bull jumped in the window.
"I couldn’t believe it,” Shaw said. “I was just driving along and here comes this dog. Next thing I know, he’s in the car."
Shaw said he has never seen the dog before, but was surprised by its demeanor. He said the dog seemed really friendly, but really big too. With two other passengers in the car, Shaw immediately drove to the police station, where they waited outside of the vehicle for the animal control officer to arrive. The big, white pit bull will remain at the Adair County Animal Shelter until it is claimed by its owner.
How often do you hear about other dog breed's jumping into moving vehicles? What if this dog had not been nice?
