Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service sent a team to the owner’s house after Seeker got the treat trapped.

The officers then called up for back up from another crew, which had a ring cutter in its kit.

A spokesperson for the service said the owner had praised the crews for keeping the dog relaxed during the ordeal, as she was worried it would swallow her tongue if she became distressed.

They added: “The firefighters were able to keep Seeker calm and use wire cutters to trim the bone to a point where they could remove it using an electric ring cutter.

“Seeker was left with her grateful owner uninjured - and by the look of the last photo, completely unfazed by the incident.”

Crews from West Denton and Swalwell fire stations were sent to the rescue in Newburn.
