Pregnant dog is rescued

FIREFIGHTERS were called after a pregnant Jack Russell got wedged down a rabbit hole.

The dog was stuck for around 15 minutes before firefighters from Peterlee managed to entice the pet from of the hole.

The incident happened to the rear of Lake View, in Station Town, at 11.30am on Saturday.

The dog’s owners were out walking when the Jack Russell ran off and got itself stuck.

Firefighters used spades to widen the hole before gently removing the dog, which was not injured, from the hole.
