Puppy rescued by firefighters from tumble dryer vent in UK

Press Trust of India  |  London 

Owner of a puppy in the had to summon firefighters after his pet's head got firmly wedged in a tumble dryer vent hole.

Dennis, a 12-week-old American bulldog-cross Staffordshire bull terrier may have been trying to get outside to play, his owner from Peterborough said.

He told firefighters the pup could see the garden through the hole in the kitchen wall and attempted to squeeze through - but his head got stuck.

Officers used a hammer and chisel to chip away at the wall to free Dennis, the BBC reported.

Despite his ordeal the puppy was unharmed.

And after his rescue, Dennis got to say thanks and pose for a picture with the firefighters.
