Firefighters Save Labrador Puppy After He Was Caught in a House Fire
Pets| | By Dancy Mason
Buster is a sweet, 16-week-old black Labrador puppy. We always want our puppies to be happy and carefree, but Buster recently found himself in a dangerous situation. On Sept. 18, firefights in Birmingham, England arrived at the scene of a blazing kitchen fire. When their trucks pulled up, they found that the humans had escaped, but the family’s new puppy was trapped inside the home.
Two U.K. firefighters went into the blaze to find Buster. By the time they did, the little pup had fallen unconscious from smoke inhalation. They carried him out of the house, put him down on the grass, and immediately began to use their newly-installed animal respiration equipment from the back of their trucks.

In one of the videos that the Billesley Community Fire Station posted to its Twitter page, Buster doesn’t immediately respond to the equipment. His eyes are open, but he isn’t moving and seems to be going in and out of consciousness. For a few tense moments firefighters continue to treat the pup, making sure to give him lots of comfort as they do.

Then, amazingly, a second video shows Buster turning a corner. After a half hour of rescue efforts, the puppy perks up and looks around, confused, at the firefighters. He even gives them a few excited licks, and rescuers respond by petting him even more. Firefighters always seem to save the day.

Photos taken after Buster’s rescue show him cuddled up in the firefighters’ arms. The furry guy looks back to normal and healthy, although he’s probably a little tired. After all, it was a big day for a little Labrador puppy. The firefighters look overjoyed with their rescue, and the family members must be over the moon, too. A happy ending for everyone – and we bet that there’s probably some treats in it for Buster later. He was a pretty good boy!
