When a nine-year-old California boy came to the rescue, it´s a good thing he was armed – with a Supersoaker water gun. And now, he´s going to be recognized as a hero by animal welfare officials.
Back in August, on a 90-degree day, Isiah Ayala of Watsonville saw two puppies in a parked car, with one window barely rolled down. He stuck the muzzle of his high-powered water gun through the window, and squirted the two Lab mix puppies.
He kept wetting them down to keep them cool until police and animal control officers arrived to rescue the dogs. Animal control officers said that without the cooling water, the dogs would most likely have died.
Next week, Isiah will be honored by Santa Cruz County Animal Control and the Doris Day Foundation.
