Wintertime can mean plenty of fun activities for pet parents and puppies (including the always popular activity of watching your dog discover snow for the first time), but it also means freezing nights, frosty mornings, and lots of cold weather, even for a cold nose and a big fluffy coat.
Contrary to popular belief, dogs cannot more easily withstand the cold just because they have fur coats, and even very thick-coated dogs like Samoyeds, Malamutes and and Norwegian Elkhounds are susceptible to frostbite and hypothermia.
On a very cold Minnesota day, one local man spotted a shivering dog left alone outside while on his way to the post office, and what he did for the poor dog will warm your heart.

A woman had left her dog outside while she was in the post office, and on that day, it happened to be a frigid -20 degrees Farenheit outside. The man who spotted the dog kneeled down on the ground and wrapped his arms around the pooch, who was shaking violently, and held him to keep him warm until his owner returned.
The look on this poor pup’s face truly says it all. It is very dangerous to leave a dog alone in the cold, especially in below freezing weather.
