Few things on Earth can survive being hit by speeding cars at 70mph and left for dead.
But this puppy is clearly a special case.
The one-year-old pooch was knocked down by driver Marco Menozzi on a side road in Cozze, southern Italy.
But in an astonishing twist of fate, Menozzi hit the pup so hard - at 70mph - that he was embedded in the grill under the bonnet of the Peugeot 207.
There he managed to cling on until the car eventually stopped - 15 miles later.
He survived the ordeal with just a broken leg and some bruising.
'He's a very lucky boy,' said one policeman.
'He was saved because he was hit so hard. Any softer and he would have bounced off the car and been crushed under the wheels.'
