After searching inside, firefighters pulled Jack from the house and laid him in the front garden. Jack suffered some burns to his feet and respiratory tract injuries.
An animal oxygen mask was put on the dog, identified by the Bakersfield Fire Department (BFD) as Jack.
"Jack" was saved after the firefighters used a high flow oxygen and special animal mask to bring the small animal back to life. "He was in really bad shape". Smith and Jack were reunited Thursday at the veterinary hospital where he was being treated.
