Puppy Stuck in Tire Rim

Because we know that a lot of you read animal stories with extreme trepidation (just like we do!), we're going to start this post off by assuring you all that this cute little puppy is just fine.

A pit bull puppy somehow got himself wedged into the middle of a wheel rim in Bakersfield, Calif. on June 20. Thankfully, he was brought to the fire station by his owner for a quick rescue.

"A puppy was stuck in the middle of a rim and was brought to the station by a local resident," the Kern County Fire Department wrote on their Facebook page. So how to get that sweet little face out of there without hurting him? They McGyver'd the s--t out of the situation!

The firefighters at station 41 in East Bakersfield used cooking oil and "creative ingenuity" to free the puppy, whose name is Junior, from the hole.

According to reports, Junior is safely back home with his owner (and his seven brothers and sisters) and hopefully now being watched a little more closely around car parts.

And there is your happy pet story to get you to Wednesday. You're welcome!
