FAIRFAX CO. – A puppy that got stuck under a tree was rescued by Fairfax County fire officials.

The dog became stuck after chasing a groundhog, officials say.

The owner could not find the pup until she heard whimpering and then found him trapped under roots of a 40 foot tree.

Officials say the pup was freed after lots of digging and the use of a handsaw.
