Dog helps restart car following roadside breakdown

A dog has helped an AA breakdown patrol-man start a broken down car according to the BBC.

According to the beeb, Juliette Piesley, 39, had changed the battery in her electronic key fob but was then unable to start her car.

When AA patrolman Kevin Gorman arrived at the scene in Addlestone, Surrey, he found its immobiliser chip was missing.

Ms Piesley said her dog George had eaten something, and realising it was the chip, he put the dog in the front seat and started the car with the key.

Mr Gorman said: "I was glad to get the car started for the member".

"They will now have to take George [the dog] with them in the car until things take their natural course."

"It is the first time that I have had to get a dog to help me to start a car."
