An inquistive puppy bit off more than it could chew when it got itself stuck in a reclining chair. 

The curious canine had managed to crawl unerneath the leg rest but was then trapped inside the chair and couldn't get out. 

Firefighters than had to be called to the scene in Fenwick Road in Canvey to rescue the pooch. 

The team arrived around 11.41am today and were able to dismantle the chair in around 30 minutes. 


A spokesman for Essex Fire Service said the puppy was shaken and left trembling by the experience. 

But it was unharmed and left in the care of its owner.
