MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - A sheriff’s deputy in central Tennessee has saved a dog by giving it mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

The Daily News Journal reports Mounted Patrol Sgt. Jon Levi rescued a dog from a home in Murfreesboro that had filled with smoke.

The Ruthersford County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement that the dog, a Bichon Frise named Abby, was unresponsive inside her kennel in the garage. The dog was unable to breathe until Levi gave the pet mouth-to-mouth breathing.

Sgt. Richard Pedigo said the dog would not have survived if Levi hadn’t administered emergency breathing.

Levi will receive a letter of commendation for saving the pet.
