The adventurous pups had no idea that their escapade is going to end up in the stickiest place ever. Within just seconds of walking into the tar, they were quite literally stuck, unable to move at all.

The three puppies were wandering around the compound at an oil company in Romania. The pups had no idea that it wasn’t safe for them to be there or that the pavement was covered in thick, sticky tar.

Puppies are stuck, unable to move

The three young pups weren’t strong enough to pull themselves free from the sticky substance. Their pitiful cries soon caught the attention of the oil company employees, who rushed over to the tiny dogs. They were soon pulled out of the tacky tar, but it was clear to see that it would take some effort to clean them up. Their rescuers made a call to Barking Mad Dog Rescue, who were soon on their way to collect the three sticky pups.

All hands-on deck to clean up the pups

It took rescuers from Barking Mad Dog Rescue and assistants at the local Vet’s surgery, to clean off the thick tar. It certainly took several sessions using petrol to remove the tar and many baths before the puppies’ fur was cleaned. However, through all this treatment, the three pups stayed calm and just accepted their fate.

Cleaned up pups are now fit and healthy

Once the sticky tar was removed from their fur, the pups enjoyed several meals; it was clear they were very hungry after their ordeal. After being given the all clear by the Vet, the healthy pups who are around 10 weeks old are looking for new homes. Their rescuers have named them Jasmine, Jeremy and Jason. Let’s hope they don’t get into any more sticky adventures!
