This dog is one lucky pup!
The cast on Chicago Fire rescued a dog, but didn't stop there!
They made the pooch, named Pouch, a regular on the television show - it didn't have to audition or anything!
Hear the creator explain it:

Sad…really messed up and sad….
As reported last week, Chicago alderman James Cappleman hired an Indiana farmer to round up the pigeons on the
skies streets of the Windy City.
Turns out that this farmer actually wanted the pigeons for live pigeon shoots!!!!

Chicago has found an odd method for getting rid of the pigeons that are plaguing the city.
They're deporting them! To Indiana.
A Chicago alderman had already proposed a $1,000 fine for feeding the birds.
Now his office has confirmed that they are removing the pigeons.
A spokesperson said:

Everyone is going wombat shiz crazy at the Brookfield Zoo.
There are only 10 Southern hairy nose wombats in North America, and the little cuties at Chicago's Brookfield Zoo are too PRESCHUZZ!!
A new joey is unnamed at the moment, but she's out of the pouch and exploring her new world!
This is the 16th successful wombat birth at the zoo and the staffers hope there is a lot more where this joey came from!
Congrats to the Brookfield Zoo on another super Aussie baby cutie!

And he's a BIG ole babe!
While we're still missing the Baby Beluga, Kavna, after his death, Chicago's Shedd Abbott's Oceanarium has given us something to cheer about!
The circle of life is a beautiful mistress, right?!?!
Mauyak welcomes her 4.5 feet, 150 pound cutie and has been an excellent mother, bonding with him and watching him take his first breath.
While these first few days and months are treacherous, we're sure the babe and mama will pull through!!!!
