Officers received a call from a concerned passer-by who reported seeing a dog left on the back seat of car parked on Church Lane in Mansfield.
The police officers smashed a window in the Mercedes and discovered it was, in fact, a toy dog.
The toy's owner, Gordon Williams, 80, said police had done the right thing.
