Locals in Peru were at the ready when a neighborhood dog that many call “Nikki,” got herself into quite the conundrum, wedging her head into a hole while searching for food in a narrow, roadside tunnel.

Some people gave her water as the rest worked out a rescue plan, trying shovels at first, then eventually a drill, to free her. Gently cajoling her from the tunnel, she was lifted to safety, no worse for wear.

NBC news reported that area residents were looking into finding her a new home.
