Dog Trapped Under Car For 5 Miles Rescued By Florida Firemen (VIDEO)

A South Florida couple drove five miles Thursday afternoon before checking to see why their PT Cruiser was handling a bit ruff: an adorable brown puppy was trapped between the axle and the steering mechanism, the Associated Press reports.

Rescuers from the Broward Sheriff's Office Fire Rescue team eventually extricated the dog on a street in Dania Beach, and miraculously, he was found to be uninjured.

"It was literally like an Indy pit crew," Fire Rescue spokesman Mike Jachles told the South Florida Sun Sentinel. "This dog must have nine lives."

It wasn't immediately clear whether the puppy was a stray, according to the Associated Press. But perhaps the situation was a bit of a payback: in April, it was a dog that helped save a man trapped for four days under his car in Australia.
