A four-pound dog survived getting hit by a car and then getting his head stuck in the moving car’s grill on Monday near Tampa, Florida. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office stated the tiny dog had been struck by a Toyota and during the collision, his head became entangled in the front grill of the car.
The driver, completely unaware of what had happened, drove for another quarter of a mile when pulled over by authorities who were able to rescue the dog. He was taken to Senior Paws Sanctuary for immediate care.

On Tuesday, the three year old pint sized pooch underwent surgery for multiple pelvic fractures. And even though he has been through a lot of trauma for one so tiny, veterinarians are expecting the pooch, now dubbed Dill, to make a full recovery.
The total bill is unknown for Dill’s surgery and care, but estimated around $2500 if no unknown issues are found .
