Oconee County Georgia Sheriff’s Office posted a Facebook message to ensure people would know how serious this issue could be.

“I’m glad they do that because a lot of people don’t know that even though their dog has fur, the dog can still get cold. So I definitely put on my baby’s sweater so she doesn’t get cold,” Fain says.
