Watch firefighters rescue a puppy from a burning building

He survived the ordeal and is back with his family.

Firefighters are being commended for rescuing a dog from a burning apartment in Cordoba, Spain.

In body-cam footage shared to Facebook, firefighters can be seen opening the door to the flat as flames lick up the walls. Foam is shot at the blaze, appearing to calm it, and minutes later a dog is found among the wreckage.

Once outside, firefighters rub the dog’s chest, encouraging him to breathe. The dog was transported to the Sierra de Córdoba veterinary centre, when he appeared to be over the worst.
