Life was the pits for this pit bull last week — until rescuers showed up and saved the sweet pup.
A 2-year-old pit bull terrier mix wedged his head through a cinder-block hole and got himself stuck.
The poor pooch, named Buddy, somehow got trapped when he ran away from his owners in Phoenix, Arizona.
When the Arizona Humane Society arrived to rescue Buddy, they spent 20 minutes carving away the cement to free his head.
A video posted to Facebook by the Humane Society showed the tiring process of liberating the curious canine, who had gotten himself in quite the pickle.
Eventually, enough of the cinder-block wall was chiseled away to free Buddy and reunite him with his owner — but not without a few scratches.
Another dog who roamed near the cement wall did not want the company, biting Buddy in the face while he was helplessly stuck.
“The other dog was not very appreciative of him being there and proceeded to bite him multiple times on the head,” veterinarian Andrew Tornell told local news.
Buddy’s owner contacted the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control after spotting him on a map.
“Buddy’s owner was actually on that map and able to see her pet was found not too far from where she lost him. She found all the information and contacted us,” the organization’s Francisco Cabella told local news.
“The dog is one of the friendliest dogs I had ever seen. You would not have imagined he just went through this ordeal,” he added.
But Buddy isn’t the only dog whose curiosity got them into a sticky situation.
