(DESERT HOT SPRINGS, Calif.) – Animal rescue officials in Riverside County, Calif. got an odd call Monday. An eight-month-old German shepherd had somehow got his head stuck in a hole in an 18-inch brick wall.
A friend of the dog’s owner called Riverside County Animal Services after she heard the dog whimpering.
“My initial reaction was, ‘Wow, how’d he get in there?,’” said Riverside County Animal Services Sgt. James Huffman, “and why is there a hole that big in the wall?”
Huffman and another officer worked together to remove the animal without harming it. It took roughly 30 minutes for the team to free Rebel the dog from his awkward predicament.
