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.

Say goodbye to tyre waste

Tyrewise

About 40% of the 6.5 million tyres Kiwis use every year are recycled, repurposed, or used as tyre-derived fuel. But the rest end up in landfills, stockpiled or dumped.

The good news is now there’s an easy solution to all that tyre waste. It’s called Tyrewise and is New Zealand’s first national tyre recycling scheme.

Tyrewise ensures that tyres in Aotearoa New Zealand are recycled or repurposed properly, saving millions from going to the landfill.
