An adorable pooch got himself into a situation he couldn’t get out of in South Florida on Thursday.
Luckily, a few first responders gave him an assist.
According to a Facebook post from Palm Beach County Fire Rescue, a crew was dispatched to help out the small light-colored dog that had become stuck in a fence at his home.
The post shows Taz standing patiently on the front path, wedged inside a square of the gate, which had been unhinged and removed by firefighters.
One part of Taz’s body is on one side of the fence, one half on the other.
“Battalion 2 team dealt with a unique extrication,” the agency said on the post. “Taz thought he could outsmart the new fence his humans installed … he was wrong.”
Luckily, the crew quickly helped him out of his uncomfortable predicament.
Tom Reyes, spokesman for the department, said that the 13-year-old beagle mix is back to his “happy go lucky self,” the family told him.
Reyes also disclosed the reason the fence was installed in the first place: Taz liked to visit an avocado tree on the property a little too often.
Pictures after the ordeal show the furball back where he belongs: on an outdoor couch on the patio, with two pillows. We see a long nap in his future.
