A dog has been rescued in China after getting its head trapped in a hole by accident while chasing a playmate.

One of the firefighters told Chinese news outlet Kan Kan News: ‘The dog owner said when she was walking the dog in the morning, her dog saw another dog passing at the other side of the gate.
‘It dashed to chase the other dog immediately, resulting in the fact that its head entered the hole and could not be pulled out.’
The firefighters said the dog appeared distressed and ready to bite people when they arrived. They petted it patiently and were able to calm it down.
But the firefighters failed to remove the loop from the dog’s neck as the pet was too terrified
The dog’s owner said she would buy a smaller cutter to saw the coil off slowly at home
Using a metal cutter, the rescuers managed to separate the hole from the metal gate, enabling the dog to walk around freely despite still having the loop around its neck.
But when the firefighters tried to break the small circle, the dog appeared terrified of the big metal cutter and kept running away.
Ms Zhou reportedly took her pet home as it was. She said she would buy a smaller cutter to break off the circle slowly at home.
