A dog has been rescued by the RSPCA after he got tangled in a garden swing.
Buddy howled and cried after getting himself snagged in the garden in Stockton, Teesside until a neighbour heard the commotion and called the RSPCA.
RSPCA deputy chief inspector John Lawson said Buddy was completely stuck and 'extremely distressed.'
RSPCA inspector Gemma Lynch said they did not know how one-year-old Buddy got himself stuck in the swing but was probably fooling around in the garden.
She added: "He certainly seemed pretty pleased to be free, he even gave me his paw!"
