How did this dog survive this fall! Thank goodness this Boxer is ok. We learned from news sources that a dog jumped from a Bay Area overpass in Florida. His owners were in a car accident and he escaped the car and was running around the highway as you'll see in the video from Spectrum News 9 in Florida.

The dog was later located and returned to his family with only minor injuries.

Animal Control was interviewed after the incident and confirmed the dog was doing fine, despite the terrible jump.

"I was amazed that there were no more injuries than that for certain because that was quite a drop," said Hillsborough County Animal Control director Roger Mills. "Because depending on where he landed it could be up to 17, 18 feet, so very fortunate. Scooby Doo is very fortunate."

Check out the video for yourself.

The dog only had a few scrapes! Scooby-Doo suffered no broken bones from the fall -- only some scrapes on his head and snout. He was later found by a county Public Works crew working in the area.

Spectrum News reports that Scooby-Doo's mom was getting ready to pick him up and was so grateful he was safe and not badly injured.
