HOPEWELL TWP. — Like the humans in the vehicle with her, the 7-pound Pomeranian survived a rollover crash on Interstate 376, though the frightened little dog immediately ran away. 

Search teams spent days combing the snow-covered woods near the Hopewell Township exit crash site, hoping to find the 2-year-old pooch safe and sound.

A full 21 days after the accident, the dog was found healthy, next to a wooden cross, in the woods by the Independence Township line.

The dog’s name is Noel. She went missing Christmas Eve.

And searchers and well-wishers say this is nothing short of a miracle.

Meet Noel

Back home now in New Brighton, Noel is doing fine.

“She’s back to her normal self,” said 19-year-old Colton Ball, who, along with his grandfather, Ken Pearce, owns the spry and loving dog. “Thank God we found her.”
