Miracle dog Winston hit by car and dragged 200 yards – but still survives

Winston is one lucky British Bulldog – after it survived being hit by a car and rolled for 200 yards under the bumper.

The dog howled in pain while the driver appeared oblivious despite people shouting.

CCTV footage shows the pet darting into a busy road in Bradford, West Yorks. It is struck by a red Peugeot in heavy rainfall.

Owner Mick Dooling, 52, of Thornton, found three-year-old Winston with blood coming out of his mouth, legs and pooling underneath him.

Mick said: “I was crying my eyes out. A bloke pulled up and said, ‘Sorry, your dog’s dead.’ He is just my boy. He is like my son.”

He had to console a traumatised woman passer-by.


Donna O’Brien, his ex-partner, saw the accident after Winston dashed through an open door.

She said: “The noise was unbelievable. It shot off covered in blood, we found him five minutes later. It was horrible to see.”

Winston’s build saved him from nothing more than cuts, vets said.
