ST. JOHNS COUNTY, FLA. — Sniffing around her north Florida yard, a Rottweiler puppy apparently got too curious for her own good.
The 6-month-old dog named Fifi got her head stuck inside one of two holes in a cinder block on Saturday in her yard in Hastings in St. Johns County.
The dog’s owner came home from work and saw the poor pup with its head wedged — and stuck.
In a Facebook posting, St. Johns County Fire Rescue says the resident — out of options — called for help.
Arriving sheriff’s deputies initially used soap and water in the hopes of slipping the dogs head out of the hole, but it didn’t work.
Firefighters were ultimately able to free Fifi — but it took the use of a hydraulic rescue tool.
“Using the Jaws of Life, firefighters were able to crack the block and free Fifi,” the posting said.
Fifi seemed no worse for the wear after the ordeal and was back sniffing around her yard in no time.
