FLORENCE, AZ (CBS5) -

A dog was found passed out with a body temperature of 107 degrees in the San Tan Valley area Thursday.

Two residents saw the female black chow mix in severe distress from the heat and called animal control officers.   

Officers found the dog with a muzzle on her face that prevented her from eating or drinking.  

"Her paws were also burned, possibly from walking on hot, dry ground," said Animal Control Director Kaye Dickson.   

Animal control officers applied ice packs to the dog to bring down her body temperature. The dog was scheduled to be transferred to a veterinarian's office for examination later Thursday.

People with tips should send them to AnimalCare@pinalcountyaz.gov.
