Puppy Stuck Under Car In Miami, Saved By Firefighters (VIDEO)

One puppy has a group of firefighters to thank for saving his life.

According to CNN/WSVN, a young dog was stuck under an engine in Miami, possibly for several hours, before people heard his cries and called for rescue help.

Firefighters lifted the vehicle with a car jack to pull out the dog. According to fire officials, there was actually a silver lining to the pup being stuck under the car -- he was protected from the Florida sun.

FOX News reports that the puppy is recovering well. He is with an animal rescue group while he receives medical care, and according to WSVN, officials are looking to find the dog's owner.
