The Monroe, Louisiana, area firefighter saved a dog with mouth-to-snout CPR.

Odom pulled two small dogs from carriers in a smoke-filled bedroom.

One of the terriers wasn't breathing. Odom first tried putting his oxygen mask on the pooch.

When that didn't work he tried CPR.

He says after about a minute of blowing air into the doggie's snout and chest compressions, it started breathing on its own.

Another firefighter says the pup should now be named, "Lucky."
