This is the moment a group of firefighters climb a tile roof to rescue an adventurous puppy which trapped itself on the six-storey building while “looking at the scenery”.
Owners of the Samoyed pup called the fire service in Neijiang’s Dongxing District, which is in China’s south-western province of Sichuan on 3rd December.
Footage of the unusual rescue shows firemen having to roll out a ladder and laid it out along the slanted tile roof.
The white-furred pooch can be seen sitting dangerously on the edge of the roof atop the six-storey building where its owners live.
The pet owners, who live on the top floor with access to the terrace, said their dog jumped onto the roof tiles and stranded itself while “looking at the scenery”.
As one brave fireman approaches the pup and lifts it back onto the tiles, the confident dog breaks free from its rescuer’s arms and dashes back up the roof, past its owners.
The pooch was reportedly unharmed at the end of the scare, which ended with the rescuer appearing both concerned and disappointed that the dog has chosen to run away from him.
