‘BonBon’ hid in car’s engine and survived a 30-mile car ride

Digital reporter and host for the Kansas City Royals, Carrie Gillaspie, arrived at the Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, when she heard whimpering coming out of a vehicle parked a few rows away.

It had been Ashley Newman’s car where the plaintive cries were coming from, and when notified, Ashely rushed to unlock her car and pop the hood. And as she looked inside the engine, she spotted the little fluff ball staring up at her. Oh my!

Ashley had driven from Kansas to Missouri with the puppy named BonBon inside the engine compartment. Not knowing what to do and how to free the tiny puppy, the women enlisted the help of the Royals’ coworkers along with their lead mechanical technician Dennis Miller.

“The absolute craziest thing happened to me today. I heard yelping sounds coming a few rows back in the parking lot. I went over to investigate and quickly learned that there was a small dog stuck in the engine of this car. She looked so happy to see us, but we still had no way to get her out.”

Fortunately, the technicians were able to remove some of the trim off the vehicle and free BonBon. Although the puppy did not have a microchip, there had been a Facebook post for lost pets looking for their puppy matching BonBon.

And it wasn’t long before BonBon and her owner were reunited. Unfortunately, the puppy suffered a badly injured tail and paw. Her tail was scheduled to be amputated; veterinarians are hoping to save her toes. A GoFundMe was created by her 18-year-old owner, Tatiana Chavez, to help her puppy.
