A curious puppy in California got his head stuck in a car tyre and the sweet little pup’s owners brought their puppy Junior to their local fire station to be freed.
Firefighters from Station 41 in East Bakersfield used “cooking oil and a little ingenuity” to ease the pup to freedom, then posted pics before and after on their department’s Facebook page.
A spokesman for the Kern County Fire Department said the rescue only took around 10 minutes.
“They got a bunch of vegetable oil and lathered it up,” Brandon Hill, the department’s public information officer, told the Daily News. He noted it was a little tricky due to all the loose puppy skin. “He was crying a little bit, but it was a nice quick little rescue.”
The puppy had been playing on a patio with his seven siblings where his owner’s tyres were, the puppy’s owner said on Facebook. She said that Junior was fine after the incident and is well.
