    At the Park Meadows SC, just outside of a major Denver shopping mall, this sign was in the window:

    A duplicate was on the passenger side.

    I wonder if the owner had had a window broken previously? Is it legit to leave a dog in a Model S but not other vehicles?

    Good sign, likely because someone had broken the window before because of a "dog in need" type situation. People will do anything to there peoples property if they feel like the need is urgent. Especially in hot climates, hot times of the year, there are PSAs all of there the place about not leaving your pets in a hot car.

    I have a similar sign for my two little guys. If people will call the police for putting kids in the trunk of a Tesla they will break a window to free your pet from imagined heat prostration

    Interesting, because I see Police dogs inside un attended cars all the time. Wonder what they would do if you broke their window to let the German Shephard free?

    Good point. When I have noticed it, the police cars were running and it was clear from the engine noise.

    Around here the police K9 units have special engine start-stop devices designed to start the engine if the temperature gets too high or low, and if the temperature doesn't fix itself from starting the engine, the device will automatically roll down the windows (these were all installed after the highly publicized death of a police dog from overheating in a car). These cars also usually have the rear windows partially open, and I think they have fans mounted in those windows too.
