OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma (KFOR) -- Former Dallas Cowboys coach Barry Switzer has a new best friend after rescuing a dog from a hot car earlier this week.

Switzer said he saw the dog in the vehicle, which had the windows down, but still felt bad for the pup.

He took "Sassy" from the vehicle, found the owners and bought the dog from them on the spot.

Then he took her to a vet for a complete check up.
