The video starts rough but ends happily. A firefighter rushes into a burning home in Sacramento County, Calif., finding a lifeless dog beneath a bed—but then, hope. After firefighters began administering CPR and providing oxygen through a special pet mask outside the home, the dog named Dicky stirred to life, reports the Sacramento Bee and CBS Sacramento. The happy moment, featuring joyful shouts from firefighters, is included in the video shared by the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District (longer version here). It notes Dicky is now doing fine, along with his 90-year-old owner. (More rescue stories.)
