RIVERSIDE, Calif. — A curious puppy got his head stuck in an 18-inch block wall in Riverside County, but animal services officers were able to free him less than an hour later.
Riverside County Animal Services Sgt. James Huffman says Rebel, the 8-month-old German Shepherd, was whimpering and crying for help when he was discovered Monday in Desert Hot Springs.
He had apparently gotten stuck with his head in a wall, and was found by a neighbor while his owner was out.
Rebel had squeezed his head through the hole, but couldn't back up to free himself without a few helping hands to lay his ears flat and pull him backwards.
Huffman says it's unclear whether Rebel was chasing another animal or just curious.
