A Boynton Beach family is demanding an arrest after their pet dog was struck by a hit-and-run driver on Monday night.

Amazingly, the animal survived with just a few scrapes.

Brianna Barnes said her dog Nova dug a hole underneath their fence on Monday and ran out into the street at Woolbright Road and SW 3rd Street.

Barnes said that as she and neighbors chased after Nova, a car drove down the block, struck the dog, then sped away.

Incredibly, Nova seemed unfazed by the sudden impact, running off down the street and around the corner.

Barnes said she took Nova to a veterinarian, but thankfully the pet only had a couple scrapes on her face.

Barnes is now begging anyone with information about who the driver is to come forward.
