Puppy extracted from teapot

The Fire Service in Gisborne rescued a puppy who got his head stuck in a teapot on Thursday morning.

The owners of the mastiff pitbull cross, aged 10 weeks, called an ambulance and the Fire Service after they were unsure how to extract it.

Senior station officer Mike Milne says they thought they were dealing with a human baby at first.

However, the situation took only a minute to resolve and the puppy remained happy during the incident, wagging his tail.
