Some devoted pet owners would say they'd jump in front of a moving car for their furry friend, but thankfully, most never have to. Los Angeles resident Ali Zacharias found herself in that very situation when dognappers lured her French bulldog Onyx away from her outdoor table where she was having lunch.

A woman picked Onyx up and stepped into a white Kia Forte that was already carrying a male driver and two female passengers, Zacharias says. Zacharias tried to enter the car after the woman and the other occupants shoved her out and locked the doors. Before they could drive away, Zacharias stood in front of the car and told them they could not take her dog. Shockingly, the driver pushed forward and the dog owner found herself on the hood of a moving car on the streets of downtown L.A.

The driver swerved, attempting to throw her off. A few blocks later, Zacharias was tossed from the hood and suffered cuts and bruises,the police arrived and gave chase, but the criminals were not apprehended. Next steps include reviewing street cameras and tracking down the vehicle and hopefully, returning Onyx to his home.
