Firefighter Rescues Dog Trapped on ROOF

Cats are famous for climbing on—and consequently, getting stuck in—trees and other high-up places, often requiring the aid of a fireman (or firemen) to be safely removed. Dogs, though, aren’t the type to climb trees. But apparently, one dog was able to get himself trapped on a roof and required the help of the local firemen in his Maine town, too.



According to the Wells, Maine police department, the pretty pup made its way through an upstairs window and became stranded on the home’s roof over the Memorial Day Weekend, as reported by The Dogington Post. Several concerned neighbors called the incident in—but their help didn’t end there. Per the below Facebook post, one Wells citizen stood by with the dog until the fire department could arrive on the scene safely.

It was then that Wells Fire Department Captain Jeff Nawfel climbed a ladder to reach the roof, coaxing the pup back inside with a couple of wet kisses, which you can see from the photos above. Taken by Wells police officer Steve MacDonald, they’re literal proof that there’s nothing a few wet kisses between man and dog can’t fix, right?
