Dog in South Carolina Safely Rescued After Getting Stuck in a Dryer Vent

Spike, a content canine in South Carolina, faced an unexpected challenge when trapped in his owner’s dryer vent. The Sumter Police Department reported that on November 30, Spike found himself stuck in the dryer vent in his pursuit of mischief. The police received a call at 2 p.m. from a woman caring for Spike, revealing that the curious dog belonged to her grandson.

Upon arrival at the scene, police and fire officials discovered Spike’s embarrassed face protruding from the home. It turned out that Spike had somehow inserted his head through the dryer vent, leaving the rest of his body inside the house. The responders successfully widened the vent opening, enabling them to retrieve the adventurous pup.

Expressing gratitude on Facebook, Drusilla Harvin, the owner’s grandmother, thanked the rescuers for their efficient work. She mentioned that the rescue operation took over an hour and expressed relief that she was home while her grandson was at school.

The police confirmed that Spike, the “happy hound,” was freed from his predicament and is in good spirits, seemingly ready to explore more adventures for the day.
