Firefighters from Queen Creek Fire and Medical today, Oct. 28, rescued a 4- to 6-month-old female boxer puppy that was being attacked by bees. The puppy’s leash was caught on playground equipment while her owners ran for cover in the car.

Crews were able to foam the bees and pull out more than a dozen stingers from the puppy’s body. The crew then used a Fido Bag from The Fetch Foundation to help aid the puppy. The portable water bowl from Fido Bags is shown being used in this photo by Capt. Anthony Klenner.

Although lethargic, the dog seemed fine after and her owners were taking her to their vet.
