Puppy rescued after running full pelt into fence and getting head stuck between metal railings

A puppy was rescued by fire crews and RSPCA officers after her head became stuck between railings. Juno, a five-month-old Schnauzer, became stuck in the fence in Stockport, Greater Manchester, during a walk on Wednesday.

The excitable dog ran full into the fence and her head became wedged between the bars. Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, alongside the RSPCA, worked together to release the pooch after her worried owner raised the alarm.

RSPCA Animal Welfare Officer Steve Wickham said: “Juno was out on her walk and, as a young, excitable dog, was running around very fast. She ran full pelt into the fence and her head went straight in between the bars. I don’t know for sure how she managed to do it but once her head was in there it was completely stuck.

“Juno’s worried owner contacted us straightaway and I got there as soon as I could. The assistance I received from Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service was invaluable and together we managed to free her by slowly pulling the bars enough for her to get her head out. Thankfully, Juno was completely uninjured and her tail was wagging as soon as we got her free.”
