ALBANY - A 2-week-old puppy got its head stuck in a wooden gate Tuesday morning and Albany police officers helped free it, the Albany Police Department posted to its Facebook page.
The incident happened about 11 a.m. at a home on Grant Street, police said.
Officers Greg McGee and Chris Stiles, along with Sgt. Robert Santaski, responded and used a Leatherman tool to free the puppy by cutting the gate, police said.
The puppy, who the department said does not yet have a name, was uninjured in the incident "and was very happy to be reunited with his mother," police said in the post.
"Quick thinking and great job by these #Albany police officers!" the department wrote.
The department closed out its post by asking for suggestions on a name: "What would you name the puppy????"
The post had garnered 39 shares, 242 likes and multiple name suggestions by mid-afternoon Tuesday.
