Dogs are common sights in the cabs of pickup trucks. Sometimes you'll see one riding back in the bed. But underhood? Not so common, but that's exactly what Walter Witthoef found in the engine bay of his F-150. There, head poking up behind the motor, was a growling but otherwise healthy pit bull. Somehow, the dog wound up stuck inside the engine compartment, where it whiled away the time by using the fuel lines, distributor wires, some hoses, and pretty much everything else within reach as chew toys. After her discovery, Animal Services arrived on scene and freed the pooch, who was reunited with her people the next day. Hopefully they'll be willing to pick up the $1,000 tab for the additional damage she allegedly caused to Mr. Witthoef's ride. Bad dog! No biscuits! Thanks for the tip, Ben.

      I can't help but question the mental stability of pit owners.

      Is it just me or is the look on the dogs face something along the lines of

      "Pass me the 17mm open will ya"

      Reminds me of when the neighbours cat got caught between the block and headers of his old 351 Falcon.

      There's nothing quite like the sound of a cat caught between a hot manifold and block.

      Chewing those wires and hoses is what probably saved her life! The truck didnt work and thats why the dude looked under the hood... Smart dog.. Cute too :)
