Firefighters in Texas have revealed one of their nicer calls of the week – tending to a dog with her head stuck in a car tyre.
The unlucky boxer was driven to the fire station in Grand Prairie on March 14 after her owner realised what she had done.
The crew then had to use a small saw to cut the rim of the wheel to free the unlucky boxer.
It took approximately an hour to cut the rim apart enough for the dog to pull herself out.Conor McGregor sued for £11,000 after 'stamping on fan's phone'
According to the rescuers, it was especially hard to free the animal since she had so much extra skin around her neck.
But it seemed the dog was very grateful to have been freed, rewarding the team with ‘doggy kisses’.
Don’t Let Your Dog Ride in the Back of Your Truck Unrestrained. An estimated 100,000 dogs die each year from riding in pickup beds each year, and that doesn’t take into account all of the injuries seen each year. Dogs in pickup beds are also at risk of being hit with debris that can cause injuries.
The Grand Prairie Fire Department tweeted afterwards: ‘Our buddy was pleased to see Station 6 B-shift come to his rescue!
‘The rim had to be cut apart using a small saw to make room for the dog’s head to pull out. He thanked them with plenty of doggy kisses!’
One resident of the area then responded by adding: ‘Boxers, such lovable messes!’
When a homeless dog, who was suffering from a severe case of mange and a skin infection, wandered into a fire station on Tuesday, the firefighters of East Cleveland Fire Department knew they needed to get her help.
