A puppy has been rescued after becoming trapped in a car ramp over the weekend.

The crew from Port Stephens State Emergency Service attended a home at Raymond Terrace on Sunday where they found Dakota, whose head was trapped in the car ramp.

Her owners tried to use washing detergent and lubrication to free the little pup to no avail.

Rescue Operators from the Port Stephens SES used a hydraulic combi tool to spread the metal, ultimately freeing Dakota.

The team says the pup returned to her owners loving arms and they were thanked with lots of licks and tail wags.
