Video: Run-down dog miraculously survives getting hit by a Citroen

Truth be told, we’ve never seen anything quite like this and the animal lovers that we are, we’re glad that it happened this time. A man that was driving his Citroen along one of Santiago, Chile’s local highways hit a dog a he was speeding along the highway.

Thinking that the dog probably just ran away after it was hit, the man went to a local casa to have his car inspected for any damages. As soon as he arrived at the repair shop, the mechanics working on the car were shocked to find a four-legged guest sitting inside the bumper. It was the dog!

How the dog managed to find itself inside the bumper we’ll never know. We’re just glad it happened because the dog was alive and only had a broken leg to show for his near-death experience. Check out the video and watch how the mechanics were able to free our canine friend from the car’s bumper.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Oh! Where is the video? Too bad I haven’t watched it! BTW, I think as a animal, uses his instinct to survived in that life threatening experience.. And no one saved him but himself.

I really love dogs and it’s so shocking for me to see a it almost die due to the crashed. However, its a good thing that it survived from almost near death.

I guess that’s why they’ve taken out the video, people who are cruel to animals should get punished fairly by the law.

I never expected the dog will be got through inside the bumper, that was so amazing. This dog is really lucky, I think someone should keep this dog.

Animal cruelty? Well I guess it won’t but that’s a good news that the dog is still alive. and good thing that the dog went aggressive.
