Dog's ruff run in with the police after getting head stuck in roof of kennel

Melanie Earley Reporter from Manukau Courier

Kia ora neighbours, A curious canine had to be rescued by police officers after he managed to get his head stuck through the roof of his kennel.

Tiny the dog had a “ruff” Friday after he somehow managed to wedge his head into a hole at the top of a 1000-litre container that had been converted into his very own kennel.

His owner came home on Friday to find him with his feet only just touching the ground.

Terrified, she climbed inside to hold him up but then couldn't let go of him to get help, a police spokesperson said.

The owner called out for help but got no response so ended up calling 111.
