A Bulldog suffering heat stroke was rescued from a car by Public Safety  officers in Spartanburg, South Carolina over the weekend. The dog named Thor was  drooling and breathing rapidly when they found him inside the hot car at  WestGate Mall. Officers smashed the car window to get to him. Thor’s tongue had  turned purple and he was too weak to drink water offered to him by the officers,  according to their report.

Thor’s owner, Tony Lee Davis from North Carolina, returned to the car when  officers were there and was arrested and  charged with ill treatment of animals,  according to GoUpState.com.

Thor was taken to  the Spartanburg Humane Society and the  CARE Animal Emergency Clinic for care. The 18-month old bulldog is suffering  from tiny bleeds under the surface of his skin and blindness as result of the  heat stroke. But he could regain his sight if his condition improves. Vets say  his prognosis is uncertain until his brain swelling subsides.

Update: August 13, 2013: Sadly, Thor did not survive the  night. The Spartanburg Humane Society has reported that he died while at Care  Animal Regional Emergency Clinic.
