Man Saves Drowned Dog With Mouth-To-Mouth

DogMarlon McGeary is a good Samaritan, and Patch is definitely glad that this man was around to save his life.

McGeary was fishing when he saw Patch, a fox terrier, on the side of the pier. The dog was swimming with his owner and another dog, but then suddenly Patch stopped swimming and was floating in the water.

The 26-year-old man ran over to help as Patch’s owner pulled out the dog’s body from the water. The owner was distraught and kept on repeating “no, no, no.” Without hesitating, McGeary started to perform mouth-to-muzzle on Patch.

His six years of CPR training definitely came in handy as he cleared Patch’s airway and performed mouth-to-mouth. Finally after several minutes, Patch was able to breathe on his own.

McGeary said that performing mouth-to-muzzle resuscitation was “very strange” and he was simply worried about the well being of Patch.

He has his own dog, an 18-month-old Maltese/Shih Tzu mix named Toby (pictured here together).

    People forget that dogs tire out and can drown. Life vests, people. They come in all sizes for dogs.

    Thank goodness that McGeary was there to help and a dog lover, too! Good man.
