Houston-Area Family Rescues Dog With Jug on Head

A stray puppy with a plastic jug stuck on his head has been rescued -- and freed from his headpiece.

A Houston-area family says they saw the dog around the property for weeks. The jug, which was open on both ends, was part of a pet feeder in Audra Bohannon's barn. She believes the dog they call Bucky, short for bucket, got stuck while seeking food.

KPRC-TV reported Bohannon planned to take the pup to a veterinarian Tuesday to see if the German shepherd mix has an identifying microchip.

Bohannon said she saw the dog around her property but could never catch the pooch -- until a few days ago. The dog was captured and the jug cut off in a videotaped rescue.

Bohannon's relatives hope to adopt Bucky.
