Jack was unresponsive after being rescued from the home

Firefighters in California saved a small dog from a house fire and resuscitated him in a dramatic rescue caught on video Wednesday.

In a post on Facebook, Bakersfield Fire Department said that the dog was "pulled from the interior unresponsive, with semi-agonal respirations".

Moments later, he comes around and is well enough to be reunited with his owner.

Firefighters rubbed the dog's chest and used an oxygen mask specially designed for pets to revive Jack.

Frando, who shot the video of Jack's rescue, said it looked so dire for the pooch that at one point he stopped recording.

Could your student loan be voided
Student loan borrowers throughout the USA may have reason to celebrate if their debts are forgiven because of missing paperwork. The New York Times broke the story regarding National Collegiate Student Loan Trusts yesterday, July 17, 2017.

John Frando, a spokesperson for the Bakersfield Fire Department, said he nearly stopped recording because he feared Jack wouldn't make it. Bakersfield firefighters desperately gave the animal oxygen as it struggled to regain consciousness.

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

"I thought Jack was going to die", he said.

"BFD firefighters consider it an honour and duty to serve our community ... and that includes protecting our pets, livestock and wildlife as well".
