Firefighters used a laminated piece of paper to rescue a 10-week-old puppy who had got his head wedged between two railings.
The Jack Rusell, called Jinx, had let his curiosity get the better of him when he ran towards his owners’ iron gates.
His owners Darren and Diane Green quickly called Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service, who arrived on the scene to help.
The crews improvised using an A4 piece of laminated paper sealed into a cone which they fitted around Jinx’s head and this helped ease him out slowly from the iron gate.
Watch manager, Steven Steers, said: “It was the quick-thinking and improvisation of the firefighters which meant that we were able to rescue the puppy quickly and effectively rather than start cutting at the iron gate.”
Mrs Green said: “I can’t thank them enough.”
