"It was a big fright! Could you imagine a dog in the engine?" Lidiane told The Dodo. "I was so worried about whether he was hurt or not."
Turns out, most amazingly of all, that the dog was not injured in the slightest. In fact, he almost seemed content there in the engine bay. Lidiane called for help from the fire department, but before it arrived, she and a few equally astonished passersby managed to get him out on their own.
With the engine now free of canines, Lidiane's car started up just fine. She drove the dog to the vet, just to be safe; he was found to be unscathed.
"Thank God he wasn't hurt," Lidiane said.
