The story of how the little lady was extracted from the front of the car is interesting.

And the name of the policeman who managed to carefully, gently, get the doggie out? Officer Muggle. He says it's likely she came from a "puppy mill," and that she's going to be okay. "She has gone through a prescribed dosage of pain medicine and antibiotics and is pretty much back to full health, very active and extremely lovable."

Mitt Romney could not be reached for comment.
