good morning everyone —
It’s been too long since Sunderland captain Luke O’Nien appeared in a hoddle.
While his past two appearances here were because of strange yellow card offences, this time O’Nien did a good thing!
Eyewitnesses said O’Nien was on hand to help save a dog that had trouble after going into a Wearside beach over the weekend. The pooch apparently was brought back to shore by its owners after it had nearly drowned.

O’Nien rushed to help the dog’s owner and later resucitated the pooch by performing chest compressions on the dog.
The club later confirmed to the Liverpool Echo that it was their captain who helped save the dog’s life.
He’s a good lad, and he helped save the life of a very good doggo.
