Pumpkin was rescued from the streets about a month ago. Recently, the pregnant dog found herself in need of rescuing again! Pumpkin was outside at her temporary home in Tennessee (she resides at a shelter for now). Somehow the pregnant dog had managed to crawl underneath the storage shed – and then she got stuck!
Kennedy Margetjak, a worker from the Hawkins County Humane Society, called to help Pumpkin. Pumpkin popped her head out from under the shed but didn’t come out. Kennedy realized that something was wrong, Pumpkin always came when called.
Because of her large belly (bursting with unborn pups), Pumpkin couldn’t get out from under the shed. Several people tried to give her a gentle tug – but that didn’t work. Joey Arnold, the shelter’s handyman, was called.
Arnold used a jack to raise up the whole shed enough to get Pumpkin out! Happily, Pumpkin wasn’t injured at all! She was very happy to get out from under that shed! Watch the video to see for yourself. The shelter has reported that the bottom of the shed has been boarded up so that no other animal can get stuck under it again!
Hawkins County Humane Society is hoping that someone comes forward who is willing to foster Pumpkin before she gives birth. Wouldn’t it be nice if she could have a nice home to deliver in? After she has her puppies and they are weaned, they will all be up for adoption.
