Puppy Reunited With Family After Car Crash

Auto crashes are often hard to report on, especially when they happen in the great state of Washington. But when crash stories have happy endings—at least partially—the situation changes.

According to The Seattle Times, a 7-month-old puppy who was ejected from its owner’s car in a crash that happened in Maine has been finally reunited with its family. The puppy survived more than two weeks in a wooded area after the crash, but was later found by Maine Lost Dog Recovery volunteers.

The official reports show that the puppy’s owner was seriously injured in the crash, which took place on August 9. The puppy was on the verge of starvation, but it’s now safe with the victim’s family.

Hopefully, the victim will also experience a quick recovery, so she, too, can be reunited with her puppy.

To drivers who are also pet owners, learning about the options that will help them to ensure their pets are safe in the event of a crash could help to avoid similar incidents. In many cases, pets can also present injury risks to car occupants in the event of a crash precisely because they are unrestrained.

As safety advocates urge pet owners to think about the risks, it’s also important to do some research before purchasing a pet restraining system to keep your dog or cat from being ejected in the event of a crash, as many of these systems already available on the market are not 100 percent safe.

If you are serious about your safety, the safety of your passengers, and your pet’s safety, stay alert to more news on how to ensure your pet is securely restrained and ask your veterinarian more details on what kind of in-car restraints he or she recommends.
