PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

When a little dog named Harley got himself into a tight spot, Phoenix firefighters came to his rescue.

Fact: We love our pets, even though they can be little (or not so little)  troublemakers. It seems like the mantra of all petkind is “mischief managed.” Amiright? Seriously, have you ever looked at something your pet did and wondered – or even asked him or her – “How on earth did you manage that?”

The point is pets are family, and the Phoenix Fire Department understands that very well.

So, when Harley got stuck after somehow wedging his head and a front leg through the bars of a security gate, his human called the Phoenix Fire Department.

Engine 27 responded, assessed Harley's predicament and got to work. It wasn't their usual extrication operation.

“With a little teamwork and ingenuity they were able to free Harley and reunite him with his grateful owner,” reads a post on the Phoenix Fire Department's Facebook page.

Judging by Harley’s madly wagging tail, his human was not the only grateful one.

The Engine 27 team most definitely lived up to the Phoenix Fire Department’s mission to “Prevent Harm, Survive, and Be Nice!”

Great job, guys!
