The East Providence Animal Control Center said the small white dog, whose name was revealed to be Suzie, was reunited with its owners Tuesday after the center went public with the story of how she was struck by a car in Taunton, Mass., and traveled 11 miles to East Providence while stuck in the car's grill, The Providence (R.I.) Journal reported Wednesday.
"They saw the news," animal control officer Evan Barlow said of the owners, "and just kind of ran down here and wanted to reclaim the dog."
Officials said the family, who live near where the dog was struck, had veterinary paperwork and a microchip number matching the canine's information.
