PUPPY RESCUE - 1973

UPDATED OCTOBER 2011



SPRINGFIELD NEWS & SUN: On July 19, 1973, Barney the beagle puppy got his head stuck in a milk can and members of the Springfield Fire Division freed him - proving man can be a dog's best friend. The photos in the News & Sun were transmitted to newspapers across the U.S. by the Associated Press. Engine Co. 9 punched a hole in the can so the puppy could breath, tried cooking oil to slide his head but finally went with a metal cutter. [Submitted by Lt. Dave Aills of Rescue Company 1]
