A DOG WHO survived an 18km ride after being hit by a car and wedged into the radiator has been reunited with its owners.

The owners, who weren’t identified, told WPRI-TV it’s a “miracle” their poodle Suzie survived the trip from Massachusetts into neighbouring Rhode Island.

East Providence Animal Control supervisor William Muggle said Suzie’s owners claimed her yesterday, after seeing news reports about her unscheduled trip.

Muggle said the female poodle mix ran in front of a car in Taunton, Massachusetts last month. The driver slammed on the brakes but didn’t see the dog.

Muggle said another motorist noticed it when the driver reached East Providence. Animal control officers were able to free the fluffy white pooch, which suffered a concussion and minor injuries.
