A 7-month-old puppy was found in the woods of East Madison, Maine, three weeks after he was ejected from his owner’s car during an August 9 crash, the Portland Press Herald reported Monday.

Tucker, a Labrador retriever puppy, was rescued Friday with the help of volunteers from Maine Lost Dog Recovery, who set a live trap for the dog, according to the Press Herald.
