Life with Dogs

This pup ran into a little bad luck after chasing a groundhog into a space that was far too small for him.

Rocco a small dachshund found himself stuck in a tree until 2 off-duty Kentucky State Troopers came to his rescue.

Sgt. Michael Williams and Trooper Gerick Sullivan were mowing the grass in a cemetery when they heard the barking of the trapped pooch.

When they went to investigate they found Rocco peering through a small hole in the tree unable to squeeze through.

He had crawled through a nearby groundhog hole and ended up wedged inside the tree.

Williams and Sullivan called the Salem Fire Department who arrived to cut a hole in the tree with a chainsaw.

"The opening in the tree was made larger, should Rocco or another dog find themselves inside the tree again,” state police said.

Rocco was then reunited with his owner unharmed.
