(AP) DANIA BEACH, Fla. - South Florida firefighters came to the rescue of a dog that traveled 5 miles while trapped under the hood of a car.

The Broward Sheriff’s Office says firefighters were called Thursday afternoon to Dania Beach to free the dog. The animal had been trapped between the car’s axle and steering mechanism.

A sheriff’s office spokesman says the dog suffered no injuries, even though it had been driven roughly 5 miles from Hallandale Beach.

It wasn’t immediately clear how the dog became trapped.
