Muzzled dog found unconscious due to heat

Posted: Updated:
SAN TAN VALLEY, Ariz. -

A female black chow mix was found in severe distress Thursday in San Tan Valley. The muzzled dog was found by two Good Samaritans -- unconscious, with burns to her paws.

Pinal County animal control officers responded and discovered the pup had a body temperature of 107 degrees. The muzzle on her face prevented her from eating or drinking.

Her paws were also burned, likely from walking on the hot ground.

Officers applied put ice packs onto her body to bring down her body temperature. She was later taken to a vet's clinic to be checked out.
