0 14

A small dog is alive and well thanks to officers in Saginaw, Michigan, who knew exactly how to save his life.

The pup was rescued after being found unconscious in a house that caught fire on Thursday, Fox 2 reported Friday.

Michigan State Police say the people in the home escaped safely that night, but the dog, whose name is Delilah, was still trapped.

When firefighters saw her at the door, they picked her up and placed her in the hands of MSP soldiers who knew she was in bad shape and needed their help.

After being on oxygen for about 15 minutes, Delilah started breathing normally again, much to everyone’s relief.

Video footage shows soldiers attending Delilah as she lay on the hood of a patrol car, and one of them checked her several times by shining a flashlight on her small body:

MSP Third District reported in another social media post that Delilah had been returned to its owners following the rescue. A picture shows a smiling person holding the little dog who seems tired but grateful to be alive:

When an animal inhales smoke, they also inhale harmful chemicals, according to Wag Walking.

“Most cases of severe smoke inhalation come from residential fires. The fire causes the animal to inhale chemicals from the smoke and soot, which limits the supply of oxygen to the lung tissues. Depending on the materials burned, other dangerous toxins — such as acrolein or cyanide — can enter the body,” the site said.

In addition, a house fire can quickly turn into a life-threatening situation and a home can be engulfed in five minutes, according to Ready.gov.

The Michigan State Police said the agency’s mission is “to provide the highest quality law enforcement and public safety services” in the state.
