California firefighters free puppy from auto wheel

BAKERSFIELD, CA - Firefighters in Bakersfield, California, had to rescue a pit bull from a tight spot.

The puppy had its head stuck through the hub of an automobile wheel when its owner brought it to a Kern County fire station on Friday.

According to New York Daily News , the puppy got stuck in the wheel as it was playing on a patio where the wheels were being stored.

Fire Department spokesman Brandon Hill says two firefighters used vegetable oil to ease the dog's head out of the hole.

The pup cried a little bit as firefighters rescued him, according to New York Daily News, but he suffered no injuries and is doing well.

The little pooch, named Junior, has returned to live with its owner and seven siblings.
