|Firefighters struggle to free a puppy stuck|
in a tire. The dog was later named "Lugnut"
The black lab mix's head was hopeless stuck in a tire, says Click2Houston.
The worst part of the story is the dog was found, stuck in the tire, abandoned in a trash heap. Thank goodness the Good Samaritan noticed the poor pup and sought help at the fire station.
And I want to smite the person who left the dog there.
Firefighters tried the tried and true soap and water to get the dog unstuck. That didn't work. They tried sawing the dog out of the metal part of the tire he was stuck in, but the saw frightened the puppy too much.
They then tried the Jaws of Life, that mechanism that gets people out of car wrecks they've been trapped in. That did the trick. The pub is on his way to a full recovery.
And the firefighters couldn't resist giving the dog an approrpriate name. He's now known as Lugnut.
