Firefighters in California came to the rescue of a pit bull puppy that found itself stuck inside the rim of a spare tire.

The dog's owner brought the unfortunate pup to a Kern County firehouse.

The rim was hanging around the dog's neck.

Firefighters used cooking oil and a little elbow grease to squeeze the puppy free. The little guy is doing just fine now.
