BALLWIN, Mo. (WTVO) — Police had to come to the rescue after a robot vacuum sucked up the family dog’s tail.
“I called 911 because I figured somebody’s gotta be able to help me,” the owner, Megan Dunavant, told KSDK.
The elderly Shih Tzu, Stonewall, began alligator rolling to try and get loose after the machine grabbed its tail.
“I’m all alone. This is awful. This is like something out of a movie. You can’t make this up,” Megansaid.
She called 911 and two officers showed up to rescue little Stonewall.
“This is a first for that,” Ballwin Police Officer Scott Stephens said. “Everyday life throws some wild wrenches at people.”
Realizing the dog’s hair was caught, the officers had to carefully cut him loose.
Megan said next time she runs the vacuum, she’ll lock Stonewall in his kennel.
“I don’t want to have to call 911 again to get him out of the vacuum cleaner,” she said.
