Sometimes dogs get themselves into sticky situations and they’re left to fend for themselves and figure things out. But other times, so kind humans come along to offer a helping hand.
That’s what happened to a dog in Antipolo, Philippines. A man was riding along the street when he spotted the white dog with its head sticking out from under a gate.
The problem was that the dog wasn’t just looking out from under the gate but was trapped!
The pup had somehow wedged his head under the thick, metal gate and was unable to pull it back through. No one is sure how long he’d been trapped like that, but the rider quickly stopped and decided to free the dog.
It took a lot of work, but eventually, the man tried to use a loose piece of cement to leverage the heavy gate up enough to free the pup’s head. It was slow work and it didn’t go as easily as planned, but he wasn’t willing to give up on the dog.
Eventually, other passersby stopped to help, and together, they were able to lift the gate just enough to shove the dog’s head back through.
It’s a move that likely saved the dog’s life! We can only imagine how good it felt to finally be free after who knows how long of being trapped.
They shared with ViralHog, “We came across this dog with its head stuck underneath a very heavy gate. With help from passers-by, we were able to free the dog without any injury.”
