'Miracle Dog' Survives Ride Stuck in Car Grille, Owner Being Sought

The dog, wedged into the grille of a Toyota from Taunton to East Providence, somehow didn't suffer serious injury.

A little dog survived a harrowing 11-mile ride stuck inside the grille of a car from Taunton to East Providence and now East Providence Animal Control is looking for its owner.

The dog was struck by a car after it ran into the road in Taunton and survived the trip to East Providence, according to WPRI.

East Providence Animal Control said the driver was going about 50 mph near Segregansett Country Club in Taunton when the dog was struck. The driver didn't realize the dog was hit.

Someone flagged the driver down 11 miles later. The driver went to East Providence Police and the dog was freed from the grille of the car, where it had become wedged next to the license plate and license plate cover.

The dog managed to avoid serious injury, suffering a concussion. The dog also has since recovered from a minor bladder issue.

The dog has a collar and microchip but animal control has been unable to find the owner. If you have any information, call East Providence Animal Control at 401-435-7675.
