Still, my Neon (automatic) could be pushed into drive without stepping on the brake -- probably broken.

Unless you're talking about another incident, it says here "...somehow knocked the automatic transmission into gear, police said..." I'd find it hard to believe a dog could grind a standard into gear unless he got a paw on the clutch
but if the engine was off and the handbrake was off and the gears were engaged as a brake (which I often do) and the dog bumped it out of gear that might start a roll.
