Tampa Tribune, Fla.
Jun. 11 -- TAMPA -- Mr. Snuggles will be getting a new home. A month after the mixed-breed was left in a locked vehicle outside Tampa's Ikea store May 6, the dog's owners agreed Wednesday to surrender ownership to Hillsborough County Animal Services.
Agency officials say they have been swamped with requests to adopt Mr. Snuggles.
"Take a good look; that's what you lost," Hillsborough County Judge Nick Nazaretian told the dog's owners, Amy Chantarak and Paul Durrance, as he held up a photo of Mr. Snuggles. "That loving puppy.
"You decided not to give him love. You gave him heat."
Nazaretian ordered them to pay $400 to cover the cost of boarding Mr. Snuggles and any related medical costs. He also prohibited Chantarak and Durrance from owning an animal in Hillsborough County.
A shopper notified authorities of a dog locked in a black Mazda in the Ikea parking lot. The vehicle's windows were cracked, but the dog was panting heavily. The temperature outside was about 90 degrees, animal officers said, but would have topped 120 degrees in the car. An officer used a baton to free the pup.
Animal Services sued to get custody of Mr. Snuggles.
Sgt. Pam Perry, investigation manager for the agency, said the dog only survived ecause he's young. An older dog probably would have died, she said. "He was a very lucky puppy."
Chantarak was more than an hour late for the hearing; Durrance said she was at a job interview.
"What piece of furniture is worth your dog's life?" the judge asked her.
He asked whether she would turn on her car's air conditioning when she left court.
"Of course," she replied.
"It is OK for you, but not your dog?" Nazaretian said.
Chantarak, 19, has been cited with animal cruelty in the incident and has a court date scheduled for July 6. She also was cited with animal cruelty in December 2007 after leaving her Chihuahua in her car overnight, Animal Services officials said. Chantarak missed the court hearing and later told investigators the dog was run over. That case is pending in Pinellas County.
