A dog who may have spent three days with his head stuck in a jar is recovering at Fort Worth Animal Control.
The 1-year old terrier mix was found wandering the streets of Fort Worth’s Meadowbrook neighborhood last week.
Because the call came in as a dog with his head stuck in a pickle jar, he was nicknamed Pickle by animal control staff.
Which might explain what led to said head getting stuck in said jar.
Animal control officer Randall Mize was the first to respond, and said he discovered the dog laying down, and likely suffering from oxygen deprivation and dehydration.
He estimated that the dog’s head had been stuck for three days, according to CBS in Dallas-Fort Worth.
They were able to pull the jar off his head, and Pickles, or Cheese Puff, will soon be available for adoption.

A group of inmates picking up trash along a road in south Alabama came together last week to give a stray dog something they don’t currently have — freedom, specifically freedom from the large plastic jar stuck on his head.
Cpl. Joshua Myers with the Geneva County Sheriff’s Office says a road crew was picking up trash on the side of East County Road 4 Thursday morning when they spotted a dog motionless on the ground.
As the inmates approached, the dog got up and began blindly running around, Myers told WSFA. The inmates were able to catch him, hold him down and free his head from the jar.
Once his head was freed, the dog ran off and the inmates couldn’t catch him.
Myers said the dog looked healthy.
WSFA reported one person has called the sheriff’s office to say they believe it’s their dog that has been missing for about a week.
Inmates in the Geneva County Jail with minor charges are allowed to work on road crews picking up trash as community service.
In addition to saving the dog, Meyers said the work crew on the same day found someone’s missing wallet. It has been returned to its owner.
