Dog Rescued After Hiding Under Police SUV

A stubborn and scared Chihuahua hid from the Phoenix police — in the undercarriage of an officer’s patrol SUV. Lt. Tom Van Dorn was driving in a Phoenix neighborhood on Wednesday when he came across a pack of small dogs blocking the road, and honked his horn to get them out of the roadway. Most of them ran off, but a Chihuahua mix darted under his Tahoe SUV. Van Dorn quickly stopped and got out to check on the dog, who was in the engine block of his vehicle. The dog stayed there for about 20 minutes before being rescued with the help of Maricopa County Animal Care & Control. "He was just scared and just really didn't want to come out for us," Van Dorn said. It was later determined that the dog is a female, and she’s been nicknamed Tahoe. She’s staying with Maricopa County Animal Care’s shelter while officials try to find her owners, if she has any. If no one comes forward in 72 hours, she’ll be put up for adoption. — Read it at Phoenix’s ABC 15
