Via AP comes this photo of Rebel, an 8 month-old German Shepherd caught shoving his head in a hole in his Desert Hot Springs home. Rebel was rescued by Riverside County Animal Services, and was not harmed in the incident.
The LA Times describes Rebel’s dramatic rescue:
An officer got on either side of the wall, tucked in the dog’s ears and nudged him back and forth for about 30 minutes before getting him out safely. Huffman said Rebel assisted in his own rescue and knew the officers were there to help him. The dog made it clear to officers when he was uncomfortable and would stiffen his hind legs to assist as they pulled him out, he said.
