On January 31, 2018, Theresa Sumpter of the Detroit Pit Crew received a call from a Detroit resident about a dog in an abandoned house.
The rescue organization rushed over to the house, but they had no idea the pit bull wasn’t just roaming the abandoned home; he was stuck inside the house’s air vent.
“I’ve never seen this, this is definitely a first,” Theresa tells WXYZ in the video below. “We couldn’t see the head, just the backend of the dog.”
WXYZ reports that neighbors thought the dogs had been there since at least the Friday prior, but were unsure of the exact timeline.
“How are we going to get this dog’s head stuck out of this air vent?” Theresa recalls wondering.
When the rescue group couldn’t figure out how to get the dogs out, they called the fire department. Theresa recorded three patient firemen working to get the scared pit bulls out of the cramped air vent and to safety. You can see the amazing rescue in the footage below.
“They assessed the situation within like minutes. They took a look, they have the tools, brought the tools out, started just dismantling the house,” Theresa says.
