A one-and-a-half-year-old miniature schnauzer has the Tinton Falls Station 1 firemen in Monmouth County, N.J. to thank for rescuing the terrified pooch after he mysteriously got himself stuck under, and, in the door of his family's dishwasher reports the courierpostonline.com.

An emergency call came in at 5:15 Wednesday evening reporting the dog, named Sambuca, was trapped under a dishwasher; first responders stated the dog's rear legs and hips were stuck.

The crew was slowly able to free the scared little guy, and he is reported to be doing fine.

Last weekend, a California chihuahua named Bailey found himself in a precarious position also, when he tried to wiggle out of his owner's hands while being bathed in the tub. As the precocious pup jumped up to flee the tub, he landed the wrong way, and his tiny little foot became stuck in the drain. It took three Metro firemen from Sacramento and 20 hammers to destroy the bathtub in order to free the feisty canine.

Bless all of our firemen. They certainly have hearts of gold. They save our homes, our family members and our pets. Most fire companies carry specialized life saving equipment designed for dogs and cats when fire rescue is involved. And when you thank a fireman for rescuing your pet, they just smile at you and say,

"That's okay Miss, it's just part of our job."

Although people come first in emergency life saving, our pets are right there in their priorities too.
