Dog, puppy given CPR, brought ‘back to life’ after Bucktown blaze

A puppy and dog pulled from a fire in Bucktown Friday were brought “back to life’’ after a firefighter performed CPR on both, a Chicago Fire Department spokesman said.

Firefighter Tammy Rodriguez pulled the two dogs from the 3 p.m. blaze at a home on the 1800 block of North Wood. She used specially-fitted oxygen masks for pets to perform CPR.

The dog was doing well Friday night, but the puppy was being monitored overnight at an animal hospital. No one else was injured in the blaze, which caused minor damage.
