Woman gets her Mojo back: Firefighter resuscitates CHIHUAHUA using oxygen mask after fire

By Daily Mail Reporter

Overcome by smoke: Firefighters in California start to resuscitate Moho the chihuahua using a child's oxygen mask

Firefighters revived a chihuahua using an oxygen mask after finding the dog unconscious in a burning trailer home.

California firefighter Brendan Saffer of El Cajon rescued the miniature dog, Mojo, which had been overcome by smoke, while putting out the fire on Wednesday.

Mojo's owner had managed to escape from the trailer unharmed.

Placing a paediatric oxygen mask to Mojo's face, Heartland Fire and Rescue paramedic Travis Timmins was able to squeeze air into the dog's lungs.

After several minutes of pumping, Mojo showed signs of life.

Then he sensed the presence of his owner, who was watching over Mr Timmin's shoulder, and squirmed back into her arms where he was wrapped tightly in a clean blanket.

Mojo was later taken to an animal medical centre to be treated for smoke inhalation.

While the mobile home has been considered a total loss with damage estimated at $40,000, Mojo is expected to make a full recovery.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
