Luckily, the animal welfare organization had equipped its inspector with the ideal tool for the task. Menard employed a car window breaker, which he kept on a keychain for just such an emergency. As the name suggests, the small device is loaded with a spring that packs enough punch to shatter reinforced glass. Menard positioned it on the corner of the truck’s front-passenger window, on the other side of the vehicle from where the dog sat behind the driver’s seat.
The glass broke immediately with a sizable bang, allowing Menard to reach in and release the door lock. The poor dog looked terrified, but he wasn’t to know the guys from the LCHS were acting in his best interests. Subsequently, they took the French bulldog straight to a veterinarian. The dog was deemed mostly healthy, but it was thought that the animal had been rescued just in time.
