KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — A puppy who stuck his nose where it didn't belong was rescued by the Knoxville Fire Department this week.
He got his head stuck in the leg of a coffee table and his owners couldn't get him out.
They loaded the dog, and the table, into their car and drove on over to their local fire department and asked for some help.
Luckily, he was able to be freed.
The department called him "one lucky dog" and said that all was well.
