(WHDH) A Canton, Massachusetts man says his puppy's lead foot is to blame for a crash that nearly cost the dog's life.
John Costello was driving the car with his 3-month-old German shepherd Rose in the passenger seat when she got excited.
"She jumped from the side seat, basically on top of my lap and she knocked the gear shifter into drive and when the car jerked she fell over down into the gas pedal and the car just took off," Costello said.
