    A one-year old dog that survived 125 miles trapped under a car bumper has been named Miracle.

    The pup was hit by a car near Port Hawkesbury, Nova Scotia, and was not discovered by the driver until he got to the town of Glace Bay almost two hours later.

    Now, her rescuers have given the tiny terrier the special name in honor of her remarkable survival skills.

    "I call her a lean, mean healing machine because she's doing so well," said Shelley Cunningham, president of Litters 'n Critters, a dog rescue society in Nova Scotia.

    The man was driving on the Trans-Canada Highway last Monday when he hit the dog without realizing what had happened.

    He continued on his journey and as soon as the man noticed the pup, rushed her to the local SPCA and Miracle wound up at the Sydney Animal Hospital.

    "She had a lot of head trauma. There was a lot of swelling in her head and the blood vessels in her eyes were all burst. She was in pretty rough shape," Cunningham said.

    "But amazingly and miraculously, there's not one broken bone in that dog's body."

    Now, the dog has been adopted by Terri Buckland who praised Miracle’s sweet nature as she continues her recovery.

    Dr. Kyla Wuhr said she was amazed at the dog’s resilience.
    “The thing that stands out the most is how gentle and accepting she is, and the amount of love that pours out of her. It’s unreal,” she told Global News Halifax.

    Miracle does not seem to have suffered any neurological damage, and Dr. Kyla Wuhr, Carnegy Animal Hospital Vet, said she was amazed at the dog’s resilience.

    She added: “I’ve seen a lot of dogs that have been hit by cars over the years, but definitely her story is top of the list considering what she survived.”
