Dallas Dog - Rescue.Rehab.Reform was called to the area to try to help the dog, who was dehydrated and covered in fleas.

Their attempts to get the dog out of what they called his "steel cone of shame" didn't work, so Dallas Fire Rescue was brought in.

They were able to free the scared animal.

Dallas Dog RRR got the pup checked by a vet who said the animal needed fluids, but otherwise they say he looks good.
