Dog Rescue - Orange

Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) crews have rescued a dog which became stuck in a gate as he ran from the sound of fireworks.

Firefighters responded to a report of a dog stuck in a gate just before 8:00 pm last night at a property on Kenna Street in Orange. 

Garfield the Beagle had become spooked by local fireworks and became stuck. Garfield’s owners were unable to free him. 

Firefighters from Orange Fire Station used specialist rescue tools to separate the metal gates and free Garfield, who appeared very happy to be reunited with his best doggo mate Lola and his owners.
