[WATCH] Happy ending after local mutt gets himself into a jam
Local Simonstown dog Simon found himself wedged under a rock after chasing dassies.
Simon's mom was distraught and turned to the Cape Medical Response team for help.
The trapped dog was 3 metres deep, under a large boulder.
Watch the rescue below:
Responders say they were able to hook Simon by his collar to bring him closer using a ceiling hook from the fire department and a dog catching device from the SPCA finally freeing the pooch.
Simon was trapped for about an hour and only suffered a bit of a fright and dirty paws from the experience. After a rinse, he was his usual self again.
