EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. — A dog who survived an 11-mile ride from Massachusetts to Rhode Island after being hit by a car and wedged into the grille has been reunited with its owners.

The owners, who weren’t identified, told WPRI-TV it’s a “miracle.”

East Providence Animal Control supervisor William Muggle said the owners claimed “Suzie” on Tuesday after seeing news reports. Animal control tells The Providence Journal they had veterinary paperwork with the dog’s microchip number.

Muggle said the female poodle mix ran in front of a car in Taunton, Mass., Sept. 20. 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.
