A Yorkshire terrier who was put in a washing machine by a toddler in Maidenhead was rescued by firefighters this morning (Tuesday).
Firefighters were called from Slough Fire Station to a home in St Mark’s Road at 10.42am and located the washing machine’s emergency release latch and recovered the soaking dog.
A spokesman for the fire station said the terrier was ‘very damp and in need of a lot of affection, but otherwise alright’.
“You do feel a bit sorry for it, it can’t be that nice going round that drum until a grown up noticed,” he added.
He recommended that parents turn off appliances like washing machines when not using them.
