Not the dog in question, but you get the idea.

A Lowcountry dog perished last Thursday after it was left outside with little shade in a 110-degree heat index.

And now 26-year-old Bluffton man Loies Loyola is being charged with ill treatment of animals and faces up to five years in jail and a fine of $5,000.

I'll point you to Bluffton Today for a rundown.

And when you hear it's going to be hot in the Lowcountry, take your safety and the safety of animals dependent on you seriously.
