A California firefighter saved the life of a motionless dog after pulling him out of an apartment fire.

The fireman performed mouth-to-snout resuscitation for 20 minutes on the dog before he came back to life.

“There wasn’t time to think, just react,” said the Santa Monica fireman Andrew Klein, who performed lifesaving CPR on the dog. “Being a dog lover and owner myself, it was a proud moment.”

Crystal Laminrande, 35, told Inside Edition that she thought her 10-year-old Bichon Frise Shih Tzu mix, named Nalu, was dead.

“As a nurse, I knew he was probably dead,” she said, “but the firefighters wouldn’t give up. Andrew [the firefighter] was so calm and he said, ‘We have a pulse, don’t worry, we have a pulse, we’re going to get him back.’”

This was Klein’s “first official pet save with CPR.”

The dog was treated in an oxygen chamber for 24 hours and is expected to make a full recovery.
