Pet owner thanks manager for 'heroic' effort to save dog
A grateful dog owner sends a big ‘thank you’ message to a Weymouth man who rescued her pet from her car.
Beau Damen-Young panicked when her keys and phone became locked in her car along with her beloved labradoodle Blossom.
The 26-year-old, who was visiting her grandparents in Weymouth, had just parked outside the Beefeater restaurant when the incident happened.
She has praised the efforts of general deputy manager Ross Boreham, pictured, who she said ‘went beyond every expectation’ to free her faithful pet.
“It was a really hot day and the car was like an oven inside.
“Ross tried for ages to get in and called everyone he could think of to help.
“He then smashed the back window of the car to get Blossom out because she was becoming really ill.
“After this, he even cleaned out the entire car so it was safe for us to get back in and taped up the broken window so I could get home.
“I can’t thank him enough, he went beyond every expectation.”
Miss Damen-Young, who lives in Gloucestershire, added: “Blossom couldn’t have stayed in there any longer than half an hour without overheating and becoming very sick.”
General deputy manager Ross Boreham, 27, said: “I am just glad I could help, the dog was clearly distressed and really hot.
“I’m glad Blossom is okay.”
The relieved pet owner, who grew up in Weymouth and attended Budmouth College, added: “There aren’t many people around who would have gone the extra mile like he did and he deserves some recognition.”
“Blossom was lucky, I don’t think I would have had the strength to break the window myself and my grandparents wouldn’t have either.”
