Personally, if you need to be told not to leave a dog in a car during the hot summer months, you don't deserve to have a dog.
Try cracking the window a little, wear your winter coat, and however long you think you're going to be running an errand, double it, then you might have some idea as to how quickly a car can heat up.
If you see a pet in a car, stay with the car, take pictures of the license plates, and record the time.
If the dog starts to pant or lays on the floor looking for a cooler place, it's time to call the police.
It's not legal to break windows in every state, province, city, country so contact the police first, then listen to your instincts.
Be very careful if you pull a dog out where glass has been broken and try to lift their stomachs over the glass or place a jacket or something to prevent glass from cutting the dog.
Look for a shaded area and try to get water for the dog to drink.
Honestly, it's shocking to see this happens everywhere everyday and I know there are many many people who wouldn't think twice to break the glass and couldn't care less about calling the police or what the laws are, so if you leave your dog inside a car, don't be surprised if you find yourself dealing with the consequences.
Leave your pets at home if you know you're going to have to leave the dog in the car. Even if it's a really quick errand. Those really quick errands are never quick.
