This young dog got herself in a ‘bar’-king mad situation after she got her head completely stuck between two bars during her afternoon walk.
Juno, a five-month-old Schnauzer, was released in a joint operation between the RSPCA and Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service yesterday (Wednesday) after her worried owner raised the alarm.
The dog was stuck between the bars of a fence in Bonis Crescent, Stockport, for half an hour while the rescue was carried out.
RSPCA Animal Welfare Officer Steve Wickham said: “Juno was out on her walk and, as a young, excitable dog, was running around very fast. She ran full pelt into the fence and her head went straight in between the bars. I don’t know for sure how she managed to do it but once her head was in there it was completely stuck.
“Juno’s worried owner contacted us straightaway and I got there as soon as I could. The assistance I received from Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service was invaluable and together we managed to free her by slowly pulling the bars enough for her to get her head out.
“Thankfully, Juno was completely uninjured and her tail was wagging as soon as we got her free.”
