The story began when the dog was found trapped inside a hot car last month after neighbors saw the animal inside the vehicle parked on 88th Street.
The car had reportedly been there for over two hours, and residents called 911 for help.
The 19th Precinct shared video footage of the June 18 rescue, and one officer was seen gently breaking the car’s window to get inside.

Officers brought the small white dog out of the car, and it appeared grateful to them for their efforts:
