Mouth-to-Snout Resuscitation Saves Dog's Life

While there are tips available on how to perform mouth-to-snout resuscitation on a dog, Moriah Deno never learned them. However, she had recently been learning CPR as a lifeguard, and found herself in an emergency situation with her puppy, Vanuchi.

Vanuchi and an older dog, Pumbaa, had gone out on the deck of the Deno home. Moments later...
Deno was inside getting dinner ready when Pumbaa got her attention.

She ran to the deck, where she saw Vanuchi’s leash tangled around the grill, then disappear over the edge.

At the other end, the 5-month-old French bulldog dangled lifeless in his collar.

"and the lesson learned (harness, not choke collar)."

Actually the lesson learned should be "don't leave your dog (tied up?) outside unattended." Even with a harness, the dog could still potentially have serious bodily harm.

You can't prevent every type of injury, but common sense will avert most of them.

Good to know, Ashley; thanks! I volunteer at the Humane Society, and while I hate to imagine this situation arising, I'd hate it even more if it came up and I didn't know what to do.

I agree guyek. I mean great for her for saving the pup, but she wasn't exactly a very willing savior.

Poor frenchie... give him to meeeee! He can play with our own :D

And yes... harnesses all the way!

Glad the dog is okay, but when you actually read the story, that girl comes off like a total twit.

"Noochi’s dead, she said.

Did you try mouth-to-mouth? Kyle Deno asked.

It was too gross, Moriah said."

So basically she gave up on mouth to mouth because it was gross... not the most heroic thing I've ever read.
