  • This is the heartwarming moment firefighters revived a dog called Jack after pulling it from a house fire in Bakersfield California

- A California dog can breathe easier after being rescued from a house fire.

Jack appeared lifeless as a firefighter rescued him from his owner's home on Wednesday in Bakersfield, California. They used a special animal mask to deliver oxygen to him.

In a video posted to the Bakersfield Fire Department's website that has been widely shared online, firefighter Matt Smith is shown carrying the almost lifeless Shih Tzu from the house on Wednesday. He was then reunited with his anxious owners, a married couple who were unharmed by the fire.

After searching inside, firefighters pulled Jack from the house and laid him in the front garden.

Sears says this marks the broadest distribution of its home appliance brand outside of Sears stores and online retail platforms. At 651 locations, Sears is still the fifth-largest department store in the USA - so it's not exactly lacking in distribution.

The small breed dog was pulled from the interior unresponsive, with semi-agonal respirations, and as its concerned owner looked on, BFD Firefighters revived the pet using a specialized animal oxygen mask and high flow oxygen.

Girl Scouts Hailey, and Kiley donated pet oxygen masks to the Bakersfield Fire Department in California past year.

Jack became alert and clearly alive, and was then transported to a veterinary hospital where he continues to recover.
