Firefighter giving CPR to a puppy rescued from a burning apartment will restore your faith in humanity.

Firefighters are everyday heroes, trained to rescue anyone in harm’s way. That includes everyone — even beloved pets.

When Crystal Lamirande’s apartment complex in Santa Monica, California, went up in flames, she and her dog Nalu got out. But Nalu was motionless, and everyone feared the worst.

A firefighter named Andrew Klein rushed into action, giving Nalu CPR for 20 minutes. “I picked him up and ran out of the apartment because time is key, especially with a small dog,” Andrew told AP. “Failure was not an option.”

“His eyes were glazed over and he was not breathing and I assumed he was dead,” Crystal said. “The firefighter said ‘I’m a positive person. Let’s just get him back.’”

Luckily, Nalu sprung back into life, coughing but moving. She’s now fine, according to Crystal, “happy and smiling,” she says.

Nalu wouldn’t likely not be alive if not for a dedicated hero like Andrew, who didn’t give up — even on the littlest lives.
