California Firefighters Resuscitate Dog

Firefighters in California recently saved a dog from a burning home. The dog was behind the couch when the firefighters rescued him. He was not breathing when he was rescued. Fortunately, the fighters were able to revive him. Matt Smith, who is one of the firefighters who rescued the dog, put a mask over the dog's face. Another firefighter rubbed the dog's belly.

The dog was then taken to a veterinary hospital after he was revived. He received oxygen therapy and was treated for burns. He is recovering and doing well. The dog, whose name is Jack, has been reunited with his family. Over $50,000 worth of damage was done to the couple's home. However, they were able to escape from the home unharmed.

Matt visited the hospital while Jack was recovering. The entire rescue was caught on tape. Someone stopped recording at one point because they were afraid that Jack was not going to make it. John Frado is a spokesperson for the Bakersfield Fire Department. He stated that Jack was in really bad shape and on the brink of death. Fortunately, you can see Jack take a turn for the better at the end of the video. He was panting, alert and looking around within a few minutes of receiving oxygen therapy.

Jeff Garnett is one of Jack's owners. He stated that Jack is a faithful dog. He waits patiently by the door for Jack to come home. Jeff is happy that Jack is going to be fine. The family could not imagine would life would be like without him. He also stated that the family can never thank the fire department enough for what they did.

The video has been posted on the Bakersfield Fire Department website. It has also gone viral online. Many people have been touched by the firefighter's good deeds.
