Last summer, the Bakersfield Fire Department responded to a house fire in California where a small dog was pulled from the home—totally unresponsive, appearing “very lifeless.”
The fire chief, John Frando, told KGET News that the dog had been suffering from smoke inhalation. He was out cold as his owner looked on.
But thankfully, the fire truck had not just oxygen tanks but a pet O2 mask that had been donated by some Girl Scouts just the year before that. They put the mask on the dog to administer oxygen—and someone captured the dramatic moment on camera.
At first, it seemed nothing could be done—but then moments later, they saw movement.
