easy to take it off on stick shift(being European I assume that's how you call manual gearboxes)? You need to use clutch to detach drive shaft from gear otherwise it's easier to break the lever than to put it in neutral. It could be in neutral, and the dog released handbreak, but in every car I drove to do that you had to push a button then move a lever - I don't think that's within a dexterity of a dog.

If it was a manual and the car was running it would have been in neutral. releasing the clutch otherwise would stall the engine. He could have forgotten to engage the e-brake in that case.

Cause if it was a stick you wouldn't have it in gear parked . You would have the e brake pulled. Probably wasn't a good idea to leave a car running period . Roll the windows down and take the keys out or don't take the dog at all.... You're lucky it didn't hurt or kill someone else. You could be charged for negligence and involuntary manslaughter.

And if you leave your car running, you leave it in neutral because you can't leave the car if it's not... Realized my last comment was a stupid answer to #24, My bad.

You should NEVER leave your dog in car even for 5 minutes. in 90 degree weather it gets as high as 160 degrees in a car in under ten minutes even with the window open.

An open window does not suffice! Have you been in a hot car, even for 5 minutes, with just the window cracked open? Now imagine you have a fur coat on...permanently! It's called animal cruelty!

When I wear a coat, I'm used to the coat but if it was hot I sure as hell wouldn't want to be stuck in a hot car. The fact they can't take their fur off doesn't magically mean they can't overheat easier.

That was my first thought. I find it much more likely that OP forgot to engage the parking brake on a manual or set it in gear than that a dog somehow, for some reason, disengaged the parking brake, put a manual into neutral, or took an automatic out of park.

Depending on the car, especially an automatic, the dog may have sat on or against the shifter or leaned/layed up against it with some part of his body. Some of them have buttons on the side of the shifter, so it's entirely possible that the button was depressed by whatever part of the dog's body and his weight against it moved it back from there, especially a medium to large sized dog. Some automatics don't even have buttons on the gear selector, enough pressure will move it either way. And then away the car rolls. It's also possible op accidentally left the car in neutral and forgot the e brake and then gravity took over.

Because you shouldn't leave anyone in a car with no ventilation, they can suffocate and die. Leaving the window open and somone could as easily steal it or the dog could jump out

I agree with #12. and #56. leaving the car on makes it more tempting to a car thief. I'm glad the dog had air but the guy is an idiot. in "park" the dog would have to apply the brake while shifting into gear. if it's too hot to just leave windows cracked he should apply the parking brake as well. that was dangerous
