Members of Arizona Humane Society (AHS) came to the rescue after a two-year-old American Pit Bull Terrier mix named Buddy was found with his head stuck through a hole in a cinder block wall in Phoenix in mid-January.
Two AHS emergency staff, Gracie Watts and Rob Grabowski, responded after a good Samaritan reported finding Buddy at a new complex off 39th Avenue and Wier Avenue, AHS wrote in a press release.
Watts and Grabowski “immediately got to work to slowly chisel at the wall around Buddy’s head to create a hole large enough to free him,” the press release said.
After being freed, Buddy had a bit of swelling and was treated at AHS’ trauma hospital for a “few minor wounds on his head and neck,” according to AHS.
Buddy was initially thought to be a stray, but AHS tracked down his owner in Glendale, about 10 miles north of where he was found. After a few days in their care, Buddy was reunited with his family and had been returned to “his loving home,” AHS wrote. Credit: Arizona Humane Society via Storyful
