Miraculously, a poodle is doing fine after a scary ride in a car grille. The poor dog got stuck and the unassuming driver had taken the little pooch for an 11 mile ride before discovering the dog, who had gotten stuck in the car grille.
Recently in the news, a man driving his car in Massachussets saw a dog in the road and slammed his brakes hard to avoid hitting the dog. When he did not see the dog anywhere, he thought that the dog had escaped harm and made it to safety. As he continued his drive, he had no idea that this little poodle had become lodged in the bottom of the car grille and went along for a very scary ride.
As soon as the driver realized what had happened, he drove to the East Providence Police Department, where officers helped safely remove the dog from the car. The small white poodle-mix was taken to a local vet, where she was given medical attention for a concussion and a small perforation on her bladder.
“We took (the dog) to an emergency clinic, and now she’s actually doing fine, crazy enough,” animal control supervisor William Muggle said. “She’s a good dog.”
It is amazing that this dog was not killed or hurt much more seriously. I was very relieved to find out the poodle is doing fine after a scary ride in a car grille. Some dogs have nine lives, too, it seems. This was a very lucky little poodle and I am very happy for the little pup. The owners have yet to come forward. If no one claims her, within a period of time, she will be up for adoption to some lucky owner or owners.
