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.

Siting next to the axle he was probably a hot dog. Had he been on the front grill, he might have been a chilly dog. OK, I'll stop now.
