A little weak puppy was in danger of a fire, but thank god the rescuers got to him in time and now the little furry baby is safe now.
Image the feeling for a Firefighter hears a cry from burning brush, pulls out a one-week-old puppy from fire The Bakersfield local department in California, responded quickly to a dumpster fire that involved help, they had no idea they’re going to be saving a life with their help.
Firefighter Paul Alvarado, from Engine Company 6 saw that there was a bush ablaze when he reached the scene, while approaching the hearth he began to hear unusual whimpering coming from it: it was the cry of a poor little puppy.
As KGET, reports, Alvarado went into the bush to get the small lab pup that was on their lonely trapped under the hearth flames. the person picked up the puppy from the bush who survived with burns on his mouth and rear limb .
The firefighter was praised as a hero for saving the small animal in need: “Providing legendary service pertains to all or any of our customers!” wrote the department on Facebook.
The puppy was named with a meaningful name, he was called Fuego ( In Spanish that means fire) and he was getting the needed treatment from the local animal facility.
Pet Matchmaker Rescue took the puppy in, and consistent with the vets he was he was one week old when he got rescued.
“He’s little or no ,” Morgan Sokolow from Pet Matchmaker told WSET. “He’s got his eyes closed still.”
Unfortunately he was separated from his family when the hearth ordeal happened.
“We think that the mom was able to get the other babies out and took off with them but was unable to succeed in this one because he was underneath the hearth ,” Sokolow said.
Fuego is staying in care for now , because since he’s way too young and without a mom, he needs a lot of care aside from treating his burns.
“The fireman got him out and we’re getting to get his belly full and make him feel comfortable.”
He will spend a couple of months in care , and when he grows up and gets healthy they are going to put him up for adoption.
Fuego was doing well in his first week, as Pet Matchmakers Facebook updates show, he’s sleeping and eating healthy , he has met a lot of adopted siblings to fiddle with like the Doberman litter of puppies that was rescued within the same time as Fuego.
We are so happy for the small Fuego, we wish him finding a forever home soon!
