Ron Pace is a hero to dog and dog lovers everywhere. When a four-year-old Boxer named Sugar collapsed near the dog trainer, he didn’t hesitate to perform CPR on the dog to save Sugar. It was all caught on video. Here’s more from the New York Daily News:
Pace admitted he did not know how to perform CPR on a dog. The video shows him pushing down on the animal’s chest several times before adjusting its tongue, holding its mouth shut and breathing once into its nose.
“It may have not been the correct way to do it and the way that they teach,” Pace said. ” it’s the outcome that’s what was important.”
After a few more chest compressions and almost two minutes of not breathing, Sugar’s chest can be seen rising and falling again in the video. A few minutes later, with his owner beside him, the dog stands, clearly frightened after his ordeal.
Here’s video of the life-saving dog CPR:
