BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) - It's not unusual for dogs to chew on shoes, rubber balls and just about anything they can find, but in south Alabama, a dog swallowed something that almost killed him. Thankfully, a creative veterinarian saved his life.

12-week-old Blue, decided to make a snack out of the end of a flagpole. It got stuck in his mouth and his gag reflex forced the pit bull to swallow it.

Blue's owners took him to the vet, who used a pair of bolt cutters to cut part of the pole off, then surgically remove the rest. Blue's doing okay now and so are his owners.
