BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — Firefighters in Bakersfield, California, had to rescue a pit bull from a tight spot.

The puppy had its head stuck through the hub of an automobile wheel when its owner brought it to a Kern County fire station on Friday.

Fire Department spokesman Brandon Hill says two firefighters used vegetable oil to ease the dog's head out of the hole.

The little pooch, named Junior, has returned to live with its owner and seven siblings.
