speaking as a dog owner and a car driver was pooch on a lead? My dog never gets the chance of getting out of my car without a lead on. Always walk her so she never gets into the road and never take her near the cliffs without a lead. The driver may not have noticed (i hope that was the case) as it looks a small dog. Glad it is okay.
