Jacksonville Firehouse Dog Wins an Appearance on NBC’s ‘Chicago Fire’

Smokey Jacksonville Illinois Firehouse Dog
NBC

Hot dog! Smokey, a Labrador/Retriever mix based out of Station 2 in Jacksonville, Illinois, has been named winner of the NBC ‘Chicago Fire’ Top Dog Competition. Smokey will appear on NBC’s ‘Chicago Fire’ in a cameo role during an upcoming episode later this season. More than 100 firehouse dogs nationwide entered the contest. Smokey will also make an appearance on ‘Today.’ 

Smokey’s story is a touching one. As a 6-month old puppy, Smokey was rescued by firefighters from a burning home. Her lifeless body was brought out and, with the aid of firefighters and a veterinarian, was kept on oxygen for three days, hand fed, and nurtured back to health. Smokey now four years old, and serves as a training tool for school children and the community. Firefighters have taught her safety techniques such as “stop, drop and roll.”

‘Chicago Fire’ is a drama series that airs Tuesday nights on NBC. The show, described as “an edge-of-your-seat view into the lives of everyday heroes committed to one of America’s noblest professions” is in its second season.
