St. Johns County Fire Rescue posted on Facebook that firefighters responded to a Hastings home on Saturday.

Officials say the 6-month-old dog named Fifi had managed to wedge her head inside one of the blockís holes while sniffing around the home. The resident called rescue workers after failing to free the dog.

Deputies arrived first and attempted to free Fifi with soap and water. When that didnít work, firefighters used the hydraulic tool to break the block into pieces.

Officials say Fifi was uninjured.

A 6-month-old dog got too curious outside a home in the Hastings, Florida area, according to fire officials. When the homeowner got home Monday morning, Fifiís head was firmly stuck inside one of the holes in a 30-pound concrete cinder block.

Fifi isnít a blockhead any more.

ďFifi was uninjured and is excited to be sniffing around again,Ē fire officials said.

The 6-month-old dog got too curious outside a home in the Hastings area, according to fire officials. When the homeowner got home Monday morning, Fifiís head was firmly stuck inside one of the holes in a 30-pound concrete cinder block.

The owner tried to free Fifi from the cinder block, but nothing worked. A call to the St. Johns County Communications Center resulted in deputies arriving on the scene. They attempted to use soap and water to grease the dogís head free of the hole, fire officials said.

No soap, so to speak. But Fifiís knights in fireproof armor were en route.

The crew from Station 8 on Morrison Road rolled up and began to work to free the canine from the concrete. The ultimate solution ó using the Jaws of Life, which can exert more than 19,000 pounds of pulling force, firefighters carefully cracked the block and freed the puppy, fire officials said.

3. What a cutie pie!

Reminds me of the Rottweiler I had. Great dog, smart as can be. Very protective. Unfortunately, she developed bone cancer, and I had to put her to sleep at the age of 6 1/2. Sad, sad day. Have not had a dog since, too painful to say "Goodbye"
