Puppy Rescued from Very Precarious Position

Puppies are known for their never-ending energy and their incredible curiosity. Even though they are typically quite small, that does not mean a puppy cannot get itself in trouble and even a bit of danger from time to time. That is just what happened in Bastrop County, Texas recently. It all began with a phone call to a woman named Jennifer Carroll, who is the executive director of Wags, Hope, and Healing. The caller was a woman who had a tiny puppy that had gone exploring and found itself in a terrible situation: its head was stuck inside of an old tire.

Jennifer spoke with the woman over the phone and encouraged her to use some grease to get the puppy out of the tire. However, it did not work. So, they escalated the situation and called the local fire department for reinforcement and help. The puppy’s mother, a five year old black Labrador named Foxy was stressed by the situation as well. She was distraught at hearing her puppy’s cries but not being able to help her baby. Soon, the Bastrop County Animal Services and Fire Department were on the scene.

They used the jaws of life and a metal cutter, but could not get through the tire. One of the firefighters realized that when puppies sit down, their necks squish and so instead of the tools, he used some finagling to get the pup free. Everyone was thrilled that the puppy was free, including the pup’s mom, Foxy. Better yet, the rescue group stepped in to spay Foxy and have her puppies spayed and neutered and also microchipped. Foxy will return to her family after the surgery and her puppies will be placed for adoption after their surgeries.
