Many years ago there was a story going around about somebody's puppy who was killed by a Walmart crate. It had managed to wedge it's body in the same place your dog got stuck and suffocated to death. I don't see any information on it, but I wonder if you crate was made by the same people.

Happily, my dogs don't try to escape from their crates, they use them as their safe place. But I'm glad your dog is okay. If you weren't around, it might have been worse.

All my crates are Midwest brand. The ones in my car are heavy duty wire SUV crates. They are only 24" wide, but my dogs snuggle in the corner anyway.

The way this happened was not a situation a BODY could have got stuck. She had rolled on her back, and grabbed the bars apparently with her teeth, trying to pull them so she could get out. She didn't push a panel out, she was pulling with her mouth, and her lower jaw got stuck in between the bars. She was flat on her back, face stuck on the ground, screaming. She calmed when I started helping her... I bought this crate off my son, who was using it for a Chihuahua mix a couple years ago... I have no idea who made it or what brand it is. Axel has used it, I had an "airline" crate, but my dumbutt tossed it outta the pickup a while back and the corner shattered
