After a home in California went on fire, a dog was left unconscious and it was believed by firefighters that he wouldn't survive.

On Facebook, many viewers from all over the world have praised the fire department for saving Jack.

By the end of the video, Jack is sitting up, alert and looking around, though panting heavily.

"We're gonna give him some oxygen", one firefighter can be heard saying as the dog lay deathlike on a lawn outside a residential structure that caught fire.

Ford's 2018 F-150 Police Responder will join sheriff's offices, border patrol, and state and local agencies this spring. Skid plates are also installed on the underbody to shield from curbs, parking blocks and rough terrain.

Later on, Jack received a special visitor - the firefighter who saved him. And even though the pup suffered some respiratory tract injuries and burns to his feet, he is doing much better now.

With his owner standing nearby, firefighters placed a "specialized animal oxygen mask" over his mouth to send a high flow of oxygen into his lungs, the Facebook post describes.

"I thought Jack was going to die", department spokesperson John Frando told the Associated Press. Smith and Jack were reunited Thursday at the veterinary hospital where he was being treated.
