On Sunday, Betty Boop, a three-month-old Jack Russell terrier, escaped from her owner's yard in Greater Manchester, England — and then managed to get stuck on a plastic shelf inside the engine of a neighbour's Audi A4.
The car's owner, Gavin Juliette, then unknowingly drove his vehicle the roughly 20-kilometre round trip to pick up his mother-in-law with the dog trapped inside his car.
When he arrived home, he heard barking coming from the engine.
"All we could hear when we got back was this yapping," Juliette told the Manchester Evening News.
Juliette lifted up the hood of his car to find Betty Boop starting back at him.
Juliette called on the dog's owner, Gary James, who had been frantically searching for the missing canine, to help him dismantle the engine and free Betty Boop. The lucky pup emerged unscathed.
