PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

It was Phoenix firefighters and police officers to the rescue Thursday after a canine cutie wound up in a cramped crevice in a wall.

The small dog found himself wedged into a cement wall, with just his little face poking through.

A young girl walking in the area of 67th Avenue and South Mountain noticed the stuck pup and ran for help.

Community members quickly rallied, posting pics of the pup on an online neighborhood bulletin board, while another citizen called the police,

Police and fire crews soon arrived at the scene to help.

It’s unknown how long the little guy was trapped in the wall, and no one was home at the residence.

The dog was clearly hungry, thirsty and scared. First thing crews did was to give him a little snack while they figured out how to free the dog.

Firefighters started chipping away at the block wall, and were soon able to chisel a hole large enough for the dog to get through.

Officers left a note for the homeowners explaining what had happened.  The dog is said to be doing just fine.
