Passerby Captures Hilarious Moment On Camera After Owner Leaves Dog In Car
Apr 05, 2021 by apost team
It's so boring to sit in a car while waiting on someone to come back out, especially without entertainment. Most of us will have experienced this excruciating boredom as a kid, waiting for our parents to come back from a quick errand. Turns out, dogs experience very much the same thing. We assume this is exactly what this boxer was thinking when the dog's owner left him in the car in a Canadian parking lot. So, as intelligent dogs do, this boxer began to honk the car's horn.
Luckily, while one man was on the way back to his own car after going for a swim at the nearby pool, he caught this canine's hilarious human-like behavior on camera back in 2017.
According to ViralHog, this British Columbia resident was on his way home when he heard honking coming from the parking lot. "My husband was leaving the pool and heard a really loud and continuous car horn coming from the parking lot," the man's wife said, according to ViralHog. "At first he though there was a person sitting in the front seat of the car leaning on the horn, but as he got closer he realized it was a dog. He started filming and as he got closer he could see the dog's paw pushing on the horn. He stopped filming and tried to distract the dog to get him to take his paw off the horn, which the dog eventually did."
This boxer couldn't stand to sit still and wait like a "good little dog."

He came up with a way to get some attention, and we should all be thankful that someone had the thought to videotape this — because otherwise, it's sort of hard to believe. Who knows? Maybe next time, we'll see this smart dog driving on the road.
Boxers are an especially intelligent breed of dogs, according to the American Kennel Club. That's no surprise after watching the video. Not only are they intelligent, but they certainly seem to be very energetic, if this human-like boxer is any indication.
This makes them a great sidekick for those who love to do outdoor activities and stay active. It also makes them great for families who have a lot of time to play with and love them. If you are thinking about getting a dog, maybe even a boxer like this one, be sure that you will have enough time to care for them. This dog's antics may seem cute, but boxers, like all dogs, can get into a lot of trouble when left to their own devices for too long.
After a few minutes alone in the car, the boxer has grown quite impatient. He's done and isn't going to wait patiently anymore. It might have only been a few minutes, but to him, it seems like it had been a lifetime.
He decides he needs to make a plan that'll get his owner's attention and bring him back to the car as soon as possible. He takes to the horn to put his plan in place.
He runs over to the driver's side and sits up like any driver would do. He balances one paw down and one on the steering wheel. The honking most likely got a lot of attention, but folks are assuredly very confused by what they see. Could it really be a dog sitting in the driver's seat honking the horn? Yes, that's exactly what's going on. In any case, seeing is believing, so you should watch this video for yourself. It couldn't be any funnier. We're sure quite a few people stopped to stare at this furry spectacle.
But while the sight of this upright sitting boxer makes a hilarious video, it's also important to keep in mind that pet owners should not leave their furry friends alone in vehicles unattended or without adequate safety measures in place. In fact, according to the Humane Society, owners should never leave their pets unattended in cars for any amount of time, especially in the summer when vehicle temperatures can reach up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Judging from this boxer's posture, he doesn't seem to be in distress or hurting at the time. But it's a sad fact that irresponsible owners time and time again forget what staying in a hot car may do to their companion. If you absolutely have to leave your furry companion behind, make sure to check the weather, leave the window open a bit and ensure your dog will stay comfortable while you're gone.
And always remember, if you do end up leaving fido in the car, he might make a ruckus and get the attention of the whole neighborhood like this boxer.
