A fire officer from Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service went to the rescue of a dog which had got itself into a tight spot and was stuck between two walls.
Lottie the eight-year-old Border Collie cross who is owned by Grant and Clare Bainham from Crewe had got herself stuck between a small conservatory wall and the wall of a neighbouring property with no way to escape.
Duty officer Station Manager Ian Kay went along to assess the situation which took place at around 8.45pm on Friday, April 12 and was able to pass a rope around the dog’s body to lift her out to safety.
Lottie’s owner Clare said:
“When my husband couldn’t find her in the garden and heard a squeak from between the walls he knew she was in trouble.
“We’ve had Lottie since she was six-weeks-old and she was once small enough to get between the walls but she has recently put a bit of weight on around the hips which may be the reason for her getting stuck.”
“In situations such as this our Control staff send out one officer in a car to assess the incident. On this occasion I was able to assist the owners by getting the dog out so no crew was required. “I’m not sure how long she had been stuck but she was relieved to be out and was running around happily when I left so it’s nice to get a good result.”
