Firefighters rescue dog from recliner

NAPERVILLE, IL Owner Ken Makris, 87, says his terrior, Ebonyser, has nerve damage following his Thursday night ordeal but that he is "coming along fine."

Firefighters who responded to an emergency call from the Sunrise of Naperville assisted living center Thursday arrived to find a nurse's aide hanging onto the chair to relieve the pressure on the dog and allow it to breathe. Firefighter and paramedic Scott Bolda says the chair's electrical controls stopped working when Ebonyser become wedged inside.

Makris says the 5-year-old pooch is on painkillers but that he was able to go out for a walk Monday.
