Faint moans
BonBon's discovery came about thanks to the attention of digital journalist and Kansas City Royals anchorwoman Carrie Gillaspie. While standing near Kauffman Stadium, Carrie heard faint moans coming from a parked car, piquing her curiosity and concern. Without hesitation, she approached to investigate the source of those mysterious sounds.

The discovery
As soon as Carrie Gillaspie realised what was probably going on, she immediately called the owner of the car, Ashley Newman. Together they opened the bonnet, and what they found was a real eye-opener. To their surprise, they saw the little face of an adorable little dog, which had clung to life during a long and risky journey through the engine compartment. Ashley Newman, the Royals' community coordinator, realised that they had driven from Kansas to Missouri without knowing about the presence of the little four-legged passenger.

The timely rescue
The two women immediately contacted fellow Kansas City Royals for help. United in their determination to save the brave puppy, they worked together to free BonBon from his unexpected prison in the car engine, demonstrating their human and selfless side.

Family
In the meantime, Ashley undertook a social media search to find out if anyone nearby had reported the disappearance of a puppy similar to BonBon. It was through her determination that she made the acquaintance of a Johnson County, Kansas, resident, who recognised the little dog and was able to reunite him with his loving family.

Happy ending
Despite the joy of the reunion, BonBon's difficult adventure left some physical marks. Due to the journey in the engine compartment, the puppy may have needed surgery on his toes and even the amputation of his tail. However, his story remains a miracle, made possible by the selflessness of the people who found themselves in that situation, and who chose to act quickly to give the puppy a chance.
