Police, firefighters save choking puppy

Posted: Updated:

Police and firefighters team up to save a puppy.

The little guy was choking and couldn't breathe.

Officers in Massachusetts then sprung into action and used a version of the Heimlich Maneuver to save him

Officer Peter Dipietro says, "You treat everything the same. You see someone or something that's in distress, and you do what you can to help, and that's what we're trained to do. That's what we did." 

The dog had been with his new family for less than 24 hours. 

A piece of his lunch just went down the wrong pipe.
