Firefighters rescued a puppy who was trapped under the hood of a car and drove for five miles before being discovered.
The dog traveled through three cities in Florida before the couple driving the PT Cruiser found him on Thursday afternoon.
Broward County Sheriff Fire Rescue spokesman Mike Jachles told WSVN.com that the couple noticed their car was handling strangely. The dog was stuck between the steering mechanism and the car's front axle, but luckily firefighters were able to free the hot puppy within two minutes.
"It was literally like an Indy pit crew," Mike said of the team's efforts to free the dog. "They had the wheel off the PT Cruiser. They were working gingerly to rescue the dog that was trapped up in there."
Once freed, the puppy was give some water and taken immediately to a vet where he appears to be fine and without any injuries. It is not know how the dog got into the car engine or who he might belong to. Mike said the dog was very lucky to be unharmed, "This dog must have nine lives."
