A witness saw the year-old Schnauzer fly out of a black, 4-door Nissan Maxima and then saw the same vehicle strike the pup with the rear tired; miraculously, the little dog survived. The witness stopped to assist the injured dog and transported him to the Thomas J. O’Connor Animal Shelter.

On Thursday, ABC 40 News announced that they had been contacted by a person who has claimed to be the dog's owner. Lydia Martinez saw the dog that she calls "Parker," on the news. Martinez has stated that the dog, who she has owned for just two weeks, slipped beneath a fence on Tuesday night

Now Martinez is trying to figure out how she will pay for the injuries that Parker sustained in the traumatic incident on Wednesday. According to the shelter, his pelvis was broken, but his vital signs are stable and he is eating.

Donations for the surgery, which is scheduled for tomorrow, are being collected here.

Note: The shelter is referring to the injured dog as "Harry."
