It happens more often than we'd like to admit: people traveling with their dog in the car get in an accident and the frightened dog takes off.
A couple survived a horrific car crash then began an all-out search for their dog that was thrown from the backseat through the rear window. They were sure she was a goner, but they never gave up.
Stepfanie and Duane Grows put their three-year-old dog Roo in the car for the drive but on the way home, they were involved in a bad crash. And then Duane turned behind the seat and yelled ‘Roo, Roo, Roo,’ and noticed she wasn’t there,” Stefanie Grows said. She had been thrown from the car, right through the back window.
The couple took to social media and 14 hours after the crash it happened — Roo was found in a neighborhood three miles from the crash scene. And on the opposite side of the freeway!
“And on the other side of the freeway, so she had traveled pretty far,” Stefanie Grows said.
She suffered a bit of road rash, but is overall OK.
