A dog trapped on the roof of his home in Maine gave his first responder the best thank-you he could when he was rescued–sweet doggie kisses.

You’ve heard of a cat on a hot tin roof, right?

Well, The Wells, Maine Police Department has now chronicled the tale of a beautiful dog who found himself in a bit of a roof pickle himself when he somehow wound up alone on the roof of his home.

Help me! I'm a curious doggie who managed to get out onto the roof and can't get down!

The Facebook posts said that local citizens saw the dog on the roof and called, realizing that a roof is not necessarily a dog’s natural habitat. Citizens came and waited outside of the home to comfort the dog while the first responders were on the way.

Jeff Nawfel is the Wells Fire Department Captain who arrived to help the pooch, and used the trusty fire-fighter ladder often used to rescue kitties from trees to instead rescue a dog from the roof. Captain Nawfel’s attempts to get the dog back inside the window brought many bystanders to laughter and tears, as it was obvious the dog was uncertain about the whole scenario.

I mean, is there a better reward?

Officials are not sure how the doggo ended up high and dry in the first place, but one thing’s for sure–he certainly has friends in high places now!
