Oceanside, CA – Firefighters from Oceanside and Carlsbad were able to help one of “man’s best friends” when a local dog became stuck between two storage containers on an elementary school playground.
A caller reported their dog had run around behind the metal storage containers while playing with kids and had become stuck when it tried to come out the front by walking between them. Filled with supplies for the South Oceanside Elementary School at 1806 South Horne Street in South Oceanside, several containers are located next to each other with less than a foot of space between them. However, the space becomes progressively narrower the closer to the front you get and as the dog tried to walk out towards their owners, he eventually became stuck approximately six feet from the opening.
According to CBS Newspath, the owners of “Spike”, a 12-year old Rhodesian Ridgeback, worked with the staff at the Oceanside Unified School District to try and free him, but were unable to do so and called for firefighters next.
