Pet dog resuscitated by California firefighters

A dramatic struggle to resuscitate a small dog rescued from a fire in California has been captured on camera.

Bakersfield Fire Department Battalion Chief John Frando said firefighters encountered "heavy fire" at the home.

When they carried jack outside he appeared to be lifeless, but firefighters worked to revive him using the masks that are specifically created to resuscitate pets.


Minutes later Jack begins to respond and is seen panting after their efforts pay off.

According to the department, the BFD Firefighters also transported Jack to a local veterinary clinic for follow-up assessment and treatment.

The Bakersfield Fire Department posted the video to its Facebook page on Wednesday, where it has been viewed almost 700,000 times.


Veterinarians say the dog suffered respiratory tract injuries, but is now doing well.

The department said it was "an honour and duty to serve our community.and that includes protecting our pets, livestock, and wildlife as well". "Thank you for your continued support." they write.
