Spike had been exploring his family’s home when he came across their dryer vent. Intrigued by what might be on the other side, he decided to take a peek. Unfortunately, this turned into more than just a momentary look, as Spike found himself unable to pull his head back through the vent hole.

Rescuing Spike proved to be a bit more complicated than simply helping him wiggle his head back out. The first responders had to remove some siding from the home to free the adventurous dog. This was certainly more than Spike had anticipated when he started his mischievous exploration.

Thanks to the combined efforts of the Sumter Police Department and Sumter Fire Department personnel, Spike was safely freed from his predicament. As for Spike, he’s likely already on the lookout for his next adventure, as the happy hound continues to explore his world.
