Top 10 Dogs with Their Heads Stuck

I have to be honest and tell you that when I was a young child I did indeed get my head stuck in a metal sieve.  I was walking around like a giant B-Movie human fly for several hours until the doctor examined me and managed to remove it by rubbing some melted butter from the hospital canteen onto my head. Sadly I also remember my mum telling me how it was “Her best sieve” and how silly I had been. It seems me and dogs have something unusual in common…

10 – Telescope dog approves of this post

Chasing a ball down a drain pipe was never going to end well for anyone, but this poor dog just went a bit too far.  Lucky for him it was just a matter of pushing his ears down and through and he was once again free again, but with a lifelong fear of drainpipes.

9 – Curiosity got the head stuck

If this dog could talk he would probably say something like “I just wanted to see what was on the other side!” Sadly this poor pouch was stuck for several hours, but thanks to a loving owner he was given all the help he could ask for and was released after a few hours.

8 – Jug Head

Maybe this dog just wanted to be a Hammerhead shark! Or maybe he was just trying to get a drink from the watering can when suddenly he realised be was stuck in theirs. FYI if you do ever get stuck in something it is important not to panic and that will only increase swelling and make the matter worst. Easier said than done I say.

7 – Freedom

This lovable dog is, in fact, trying to escape a very bad owner indeed. The good news is that the dog escaped relatively unhurt and was re-homed with much more loving owners. Some people make me sick they really do, love how cute it is, how could they do that. But at least it is a happy ending.

6 – Diet needed

Maybe if the dog had stayed drinking diet pop he might not have got its head stuck. But at least it is only cardboard and a simple rip and tear here and there and he will soon be free. But forever drinking Coke-Cola instead.

Dog with its head stuck in a Fish Bowl

5 – “Sorry about the fish, you might want to put a net behind me when I poop!”

It might look like a fish bowl, but I am going to guess that it is, in fact, a cookie jar and there were some rather tasty crumbs in it. But with a little tug and pull the dog was soon freed none the wiser for his experience I would imagine.

4 – “I have been eating a little bit extra, but that doesn’t explain this spare tyre!”

It is apparently a complete mystery what poor little Tinks was doing or indeed did to get her head stuck in a car wheel, but as will all our dogs here she recovered OK and was only stuck for a few hours. Fair play, that is one tiny hole in the middle of those tyres.

Dog with its head stuck in a Cat Flap

3 – “Chasing the cat again?, Me? I’ve been asleep all day until this door attacked!

OK, this dog is most probably not stuck at all, but still looking rather lovable. I used to work as a paper boy when I was younger and saw quite a few dogs that did this through the cat flap. It was the nipping ones that could squeeze through, you really had to watch out!

2 – “must…get…every….last…bit…of…food!”

The dog might seem to have its head stuck here, but the fact that it has holes in the bottom of the can means there is no vacuum to keep him in there, so with a simple pull he would be free to do it again and again.

1 – “Well this is the last time I try to bite that postman!”

Of course the dog is not really stuck like that, it is just being silly. But it was too much of a lovable face and squashed smile not to make it the top of this list. Let us hope he doesn’t hurt is chops doing that.

  1. Pardon me for any animal cruelty if i do.. But I cant control my laughter looking at these dogs caught in such situations.. Really awesome collection of pics!!

  2. This is great. Having recently come home to a trash can ripped to pieces by my puppy, I wish I had a funny picture to go with it. Just frustration on my part for leaving it out. Thanks for following.

  3. Yes, I feel sorry for them. But who can help laughing at these dogs who have gotten themselves into these unusual but hilarious predicaments??

  4. I have two cats. I’ve had dogs growing up, and considered my parents dogs mine as well though I didn’t live with them. They had two pugs. I absolutely love pugs. Dog nature amuses me about as much as cat nature, they each have unique quirks and ways of getting themselves into hysterical messes such as these pics!

  5. Awwwww, poor dog beasts! I’m amazed our family dog hasn’t amanged something like this, to be honest. He jams his head into anything he can find. I was once play chasing him and he ran into a tree, so this makes up for it.

  6. haha! I had a german shepherd who tried going out the doggy door. Except it was way to small for him, and yup, he got stuck! I had to grease him down to get him out. Too funny. He was ok too, well after his bath, which he did not approve of!

  7. Oh my goodness, my Jack Russel did the exact same thing with the Pepsi box! I wish I had a photo of when she got her head stuck in a Christmas gift box, ha ha! Good times, good times…

  8. Like I said I did indeed check that they were all, all right after there released so we can laugh at these safely knowing they are most probably still alive but deeply embarrassed.
