Upon arrival, they stumbled upon a perplexed pooch with minor injuries. Sgt. James Huffman from Riverside County Animal Services exclaimed, “I was taken aback and thought to myself, ‘How on earth did he manage to get in there?’ And what’s up with that massive hole in the wall?” as he recounted the incident in a statement to the press.
Sergeant Huffman and Officer Hector Palafox took quick action to assess the dog’s condition, checking his breathing and determining that he was not in immediate danger. They were careful not to harm the animal while trying to rescue him from his precarious situation between a block wall. The officers measured the distance between the wall and the dog’s head, ensuring that they could safely retrieve him without causing further harm. Despite the unpleasant circumstances, the dog was still able to breathe easily, giving the officers hope that they could successfully rescue him.
