(CNN) – A dog in Kentucky found himself in a tight spot and had to be rescued.

Two off-duty state troopers were doing work at a cemetery when they heard barking. They investigated and found a cute face sticking out of a tree.

Initial attempts to free the dog were unsuccessful so they called in the fire department. A firefighter then cut a hole  in the trunk of the tree so that they could pull the pup out.

The dog, named Rocco, was reunited with his owner.

So how’d he end up inside the tree? 

Apparently, he crawled in through a groundhog hole.
