A chocolate lab with a bad case of separation anxiety became stuck in a gate in pursuit of his owner Monday.

Firefighters had to cut "Cooper," the five-year-old lab, from the wrought iron security bars he lodged himself between, according to the San Diego County News Center.

Cooper became stuck after breaking a window and tearing out a screen. His owners say he has separation anxiety and doesn't like to be far from his owner.

“How in the world the dog got his head and shoulders through a 4-inch gap we’ll never know," said Department of Animal Services' Dan DeSousa.

Cooper is said to be okay.
