Dachshunds are renowned for sticking their heads in first and asking questions later.
So it’s not too surprising — especially when you throw in the fact that his owner was readying for an outing — that Milo found himself wedged halfway through a garden gate.
His owner, Sarah Jane Thompson, of Glasgow, was loading her six-week-old daughter into her carriage Monday when Milo ran around the garden and, in his excitement, got between the railings.
“He’s not as thin as he used to be so I think that he may have underestimated his own size,” Thompson told Metro.
Thompson, knowing dachshunds have sensitive backs, spent 30 minutes trying to gently dislodge him before calling the fire department to come and free him, the Daily Mail reported.
The Daily Mail article does not specify how they managed to extricate him — Jaws of Life? Soap and water? Buttering him up? — but Metro reports firefighters were able to dislodge him after turning him sideways.
In any event, it all ended happily, and we’re pretty sure Milo won’t do this again, until the next time he does it again.

As any beagle owner knows, the breed is adept at escaping, even in puppyhood.
A temporary kennel posed little challenge for this beagle.
And last but not least, watch this astute beagle — as his envious cellmates look on — figure out the best way out is up, even when there’s a roof.
