A lucky little Jack Russell puppy called Nutty owes it’s life to the fast thinking of it’s Co Wicklow owner.
John Greene of Greystones was in his house when he heard the nine chickens he owns making a commotion.
He saw the outside that his puppy was in the water of his pond and struggling to keep afloat.
Mr Greene ran outside, and pulled Nutty out of the pond, then ran with inside into the house and laid him the counter.
He was still and lifeless, his tongue was blue and his eyes wide open.
Mr Greene gave poor Nutty mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, and action that vets say saved Nutty’s life. He kept working on the dog for over 20 minutes before he came back to life.
“Now he’s back to himself and chasing after the chickens again the whole time,” said loving owner John Green.
Nutty was only eight-weeks old at the time of the incident.
