Firefighters Are Called After A Dachshund Gets Stuck In A Wine Rack

Life is always interesting with a dog around, and that apparently includes a wiener dog named Millie.

As a black and tan shorthaired dachshund, she is easy to recognize. It seems as if she is also a dog that likes getting in a tight spot on occasion.

Unfortunately, Millie was wedged inside of a wine rack in Jubilee Close in Waterbeach, Cambridgeshire.

Try as they might, her owners could not get her free so they had to call the firemen for help.

When the first responders arrived, it was said that they “found Millie firmly stuck in the metal rack, but it is not yet known how she came to be in such a predicament,” according to BBC.

I have to admit, this is probably one of the most unusual calls that they ran that day. I’m sure that they sometimes get emergencies involving dogs, but this one was out of the ordinary, to say the least.

The firefighters got to work quickly, using metal cutters to release Millie from her wine rack entrapment.

We are happy to say that she is doing fine and was not harmed during the rescue attempt.

The wine rack, on the other hand, could use some work.
