A live puppy landed on a moving car after being launched from a window in a plastic bag.
The passing driver was given the fright of her life when a young dog crashed onto her vehicle in early September.
Following the disturbing fright in Rhondda, South Wales, a charity shop in the nearby village of Williamstown took in the pup before handing it over to their Ton Pentre rescue centre.
Friends of Animals staff believe him to be a 12 or 13 week old Patterdale Terrier cross Spaniel, but admit it is hard to tell his breed until he is fully grown.
Founder and rescue co-ordinator at Friends of Animals, Eileen Jones told TeamDogs: "He’s doing well, he’s made a good recovery.
"It’s so frustrating when people do things like that because rescues are overflowing at the moment."
Eileen suspects the puppy was abandoned because he has a chronic skin condition that could rack up some high medical bills, Wales Online reports.
She made the point that despite the pressures, rescue centres will very rarely turn down a puppy because there will always be someone volunteering to foster.

Eileen said: "I would prefer to think its people who are in a desperate situation rather than someone who does it maliciously.
"I try to look at the better side of human nature and understand that people get desperate. I absolutely understand but you’ve got to take responsibility and put the effort into getting help, not just abandoning animals."
The puppy has thankfully been settling in well and is perfectly healthy other than his skin condition.

Eileen went on: "Now he’s recovered from the trauma, he’s a bit of a tinker.
"He’s full-on but a typical puppy that hasn’t had any training and just wants to play. He’s absolutely gorgeous."
It is not the first time Friends of Animals have rescued a dog from a similar situation.
A couple of years ago, they saved a Terrier who had been abandoned on a bypass.
It left the dog with a broken leg and a severely damaged penis from dragging along the ground which consequently needed surgery.
Friends of Wales is a small independent rescue centre in South Wales with a non-destruct policy, completely run by volunteers.
