3 Florida German Shepherds Hijack Woman's Car and Refuse to Leave

On Wednesday, the St. Petersburg Police Department shared an incident showcasing the extraordinary lengths some dogs will go to so they can go bye bye. This included hijacking a stranger's car and adamantly refusing to get out of the vehicle.

Three German Shepherds jumped into a woman's car while she was dropping her son off at daycare and absolutely refused to budge until officers arrived on the scene.

The St.Petersburg Police Department posted on Facebook, "All it took was an open car door for these 3 adorable German shepherds to jump into a stranger's car on Kingston Street South today and wouldn't get out. Understandably, the woman driver wasn't too pleased! So our officers stepped in, coaxed the dogs out of the vehicle, and gave them a lift to Pinellas Animal Urgent Care until the owner was located and took them home."

Car Safety Tips For Dogs

First of all, never leave your dog unattended in your car, no matter how long you'll be away from them. Temperatures in cars can get very hot or very cold quickly, and it's just not worth risking your fur baby's life.

Make sure you secure your dog in a crate or carrier specifically designed for car travel. Or use a special seat restraint designed for dogs. This provides a safe and secure space for your dog and prevents them from roaming around the car, which can be dangerous for both the dog and the driver.

Never, ever let your dog ride in the front seat or on your lap, as they can be seriously injured by airbag deployment in the event of a crash.

If you're driving a long distance, make sure you pack all of their essentials like food, toys and a water bowl and take frequent breaks to let your pup do their business and have playtime and exercise.
