It was a tough spot for a little dog.

Firefighters in the Chicago suburb of Naperville were dispatched to the Sunrise nursing home next door to rescue a small dog.

The pooch had gotten wedged in its owner's mechanized recliner.

Firefighter and paramedic Scott Bolda says when they arrived, a nurse's aide was hanging onto the chair.

The aide was trying to relieve pressure on the dog and allow it to breathe.

Firefighters had to use a saw to cut the chair apart.

But the resident's little buddy seems to have come through the ordeal just fine.

Bolda says they've never had a rescue quite like that before.
