A 12 week- old German Shepherd puppy named Rosie took it too far when she and her owner recently finished their daily walk around a local pond.

John Costello, Rosie's owner put her in his daughter's Dodge Neon so that they could head home, but in her excitement "The dog just jumped in and hit the gear shift and the car jerked and she fell on top of the gas pedal," he said. The frightened puppy jumped in to the back seat, and that made it very hard to rescue her, but with the help of people nearby and first responders, she was pulled safely out of the water just in time.

The car is a complete loss, but John has good insurance. Rosie, on the other hand, is just fine.
