A five-week-old puppy had to be rescued by firefighters after his head became trapped in a lawn chair.

His family tried to squeeze it out but didn’t have the right tools on hand, the so-called 911 for help.

Glenn Usdin, assistant fire chief of the Lancaster Township Fire Department, arrived on the scene and successfully cut the pet loose.

He said, “They said he was the naughty one.

“We often help with animals in danger, from baby ducks stuck in rain drains, or pets locked in cars and even the occasional cat stuck in a tree.

“As long as there is no other call for help at the same time, we will always help the animals in need, be they wild animals or domesticated pets.

“When the dispatcher gave us the information, we knew right away that we had to hurry in case the dog had any breathing problems. We treat our residents’ pets as carefully as if they were human and rush to the crime scene to help them.

“We decided that using our rescue truck’s cutting tool would release his head in the quickest way with the least risk to him.

“These tools are quite large and not made for delicate cutting, but we protected his head while a firefighter cut the steel frame of the chair.”

It took Glenn and his team about five minutes to free the Samoyed puppy from the steel chair in the yard in Lancaster Township.

A spokesman for the armed forces added: ‘While he did not appear to be in any distress, he was held very tightly.

“Using the hydraulic cutting tool, we were able to make a cut in the seat frame and free the mischievous Samoyed puppy and return it to its owners.

All good very happy owners and a warning to the puppy to stay away from overturned chairs.

‘People or animals, we take care of all our township residents!’
