ROCKY MOUNT, N.C. (AP) -- A dog rescued from death row now has a home in North Carolina after surviving a car crash and 24 days lost in Virginia.

The Rocky Mount Telegram reported ( that Felix is a beagle-German shepherd mix rescued from the Nash County Animal Shelter.

After staying with Amy Woodworth of Rocky Mount during treatment for heartworm, Felix was headed to a rescue group in Vermont. Their van crashed on Interstate 95 in Emporia, Va., and Felix was ejected.

A network of animal lovers in North Carolina and Virginia worked together to search for Felix, who was found last week at an apartment complex in Emporia.

Now he has a home with Woodworth and her boyfriend's family.
