Angus needed oxygen — and one firefighter’s act of kindness during a rescue is tugging at the heartstrings of people everywhere.
The rescuer, who hasn’t yet been named, is seen in a Facebook photo posted by the Metropolitan Fire and Emergency Services Board gently holding an oxygen mask over the pup’s mouth after he was rescued from a house fire in Vermont, Australia.
“Crews had extinguished the blaze, started by a TV, when the owners asked them to check again for their missing dog,” reads the caption for the pic posted on Sunday, which has been liked over 1,000 times. “He was found hiding under a bed upstairs and is lucky to be alive.”
Angus’s owner, who wasn’t home at the time of the blaze, reports Australia’s ABC news, is no doubt thankful for the bravery of the firefighters this holiday season.
“Angus and his very relieved owner have been reunited,” reads another post about the dog, who is seen covered in dirt in his mother’s arms. “He needs a good wash but is going to be fine.”
