On June 1, 2014, Massachusetts State Troopers stationed in Sturbridge rescued a golden retriever who was pinned underneath his owner's car, according to the Worcester Telegram and Gazette.

State Troopers Paul Bertozzi and Daniel Nunes, as well as Holland Animal Control Officer Wendy LeSage, showed up at the Holland home Sunday afternoon to discover the dog wedged under the car. The owner had backed out of her driveway and accidentally hit her dog, who then got stuck under the car.

The troopers, with the help of animal control, used jacks to lift the car up so they could pull the dog out. He was one lucky dog, only suffering from minor burns. The owner took him to the veterinarian to get him checked out.

As soon as the retriever was pulled free from under the car, he ran straight over to the troopers who saved him and thanked them with “slobbery kisses.”
