Firefighters use canine resuscitator to save dog

Firefighters in Long Beach, California, entered a house on fire and rescued the family's dog, according to NBC Los Angeles.

On Thursday, March 3, at about 10:30 in the morning, the owners of a house near 4800 Bentree Avenue were not home. Unfortunately, the house caught on fire and firefighters found "what appeared to be a lifeless, medium-sized dog" in the bathroom, the news source reports.

There was fire in the rear of the house as well as in the attic, according to KTLA News.

The firefighters brought the dog to life using a canine resuscitator, and the dog - who has since been taken to a veterinarian - will be alright.

According to firefighter Steve Yamamoto, one of the firefighters carried the dog out of the house.

Investigations are ongoing as to the cause of the flames.

The Human Society reports that there are about 77.5 million household dogs in the United States, with 39 percent of homes having at least one canine pet. About 19 percent of pet dogs are from animal rescue shelters.
