AMAZING PICTURE: GERMAN SHEPARD GETS STUCK IN TIGHT SPOT

Los Angeles Times:

An 8-month-old German shepherd named Rebel somehow squeezed his head through a hole in an 18-inch block wall at his Desert Hot Springs home Monday.

Then he got stuck.

Rebel may have been chasing another animal or was just curious about the hole, said Sgt. James Huffman of Riverside County Animal Services. The dog cried and whimpered until a friend of the owner  heard him and called authorities. The dog’s owner wasn’t home at the time.

KTLA-TV:

There was enough room to manage a rescue without breaking down the wall and risking further injury to the animal.

One officer worked the dog’s head from one side of the wall, while the other officer worked the dog’s body on the other side.

Officer Palafox pushed the dog’s ears back to ensure the dog would not suffer during the rescue attempt.

Some minor nudging and roughly 30 minutes into the rescue, Rebel the dog was free once again.

“He let us know if we were pushing too hard – but he kept working right along with us,” Sgt. Huffman said. “He helped a lot. You could see his hind legs stiffen to assist in the direction we were going. He knew we were there to save him.”

The dog was released to the owner’s friend.

  1. It is amazing they got him out of that tight spot. I can see the sad look in his eyes knowing the spot he is in.
