Unconscious Dog Pulled From Smoky Building Is Saved Thanks To New Firefighter Procedure

Firefighters are true heroes, and they put their lives on the line to save anyone or anything. So I’m all for anything that will make their jobs easier. Thanks to some specially-designed pet oxygen masks, firefighters have a much greater chance of saving an animal’s life after pulling one from a smoke-filled building. It makes all the difference to not have to struggle to place a mask made for a human face over a dog’s nose. The video below is a great example of how seamless this new procedure can make reviving an unconscious pet.

As said by the licensor of the video: “West Midlands Fire Service is the second largest in the UK outside of London. Fire engines based at each of its thirty-eight fire stations now carry specially-designed oxygen masks to use on pets that have been overcome by the effects of smoke in a fire. There are three reusable masks in each kit, each of different sizes, several of which have been provided by public donation and in conjunction with the Smokey Paws charity. Within days of the masks going into use, firefighters based at Billesley in Birmingham, UK used one to revive the puppy seen in the video, which was captured by firefighters on mobile phones and body-worn cameras. The animal had been overcome by smoke in a domestic fire.”

He’d Never Been Touched By A Human, But Watch When They Start To Shave Him

Hope For Paws received a call about a homeless dog who’d never had any human contact. They knew capturing him would be tricky but necessary to his survival. Wait until you see the dog that’s underneath all of that fur. This is Benji’s rescue and transformation as told by the rescuer himself:

“BENJI was a homeless dog his whole life. When Hope For Paws received the call about him, I asked Lisa Chiarelli to join me. Benji was very nervous, and when he realized that we were looking at him, he started running, and we started running after him! It was a little tricky because I had to keep an eye on him while running, and at the same time I had to set up my gentle snare AND keep my hand held camera straight – you’ll just have to see how I managed all that ;-)”

Magical, Ghost-White Giraffes Spotted In The Wild, And They’re A Mystery

A rare white giraffe and her baby were seen on protected lands in Garissa County, Kenya, and they are a special sight to behold.

The ghost-white giraffes have a genetic condition called leucism which causes a partial loss of skin pigmentation. The condition may allow some outlines of a giraffe’s original patterns to show causing some spots to still be visible.

Dog Rescued From Horrific Hoarding Case Has Never Been Touched By A Human

This video gives you a look into the dangerous world of dog rehabilitation and shows the importance of trained professionals taking on the task of getting formerly abused and neglected dogs ready to be rehomed. Some of the situations can be very fragile, and it takes the soft touch and calming words of these heroes to get the dogs where they need to be physically and mentally. These dogs deserve a second chance in life, and it’d be nearly impossible without this kind of help.

“In a rehab facility, dogs come in that have been severely abused and sometimes, have never been touched by a human. In this video, Elsa has come in from a horrific hoarding case and has never been touched. The goal today was to get a collar and leash on her and to gain trust through canine massage. The licensed Canine Massage Therapist has to have the keen sense of reading the body language of the dog which will enable her to know exactly when to eliminate the towel barrier and touch the dog without protection. AGAIN, This is extremely dangerous and should not be attempted unless you are a professional.

“Elsa has since been rehabilitated and adopted by a family who adopted another dog a year early that was rehabilitated from the same property. Both dogs have changed dramatically and are living wonderful lives thanks to Dogs Deserve Better in Smithfield, VA and their loving adopters.”

With Just A Little Snack, Boy Befriends Giant Sea Creature

No one would believe what this kid did without this video, so it’s a good thing it was recorded! Out of all of the animals and species in the world, this is probably the last creature you’d guess a little boy befriended with just the help of a snack. People usually either find sea creatures fascinating or frightening, but this boy showed no fear while trying to become friends with a giant manta ray!

In Spain’s Canary Islands, all types of stingray species can be seen in the surrounding waters. This spot with the descending stairs is a place where local fishermen often throw back unwanted fish, and sea creatures stop by hoping to find an easy meal. If you want to see some beautiful beasts up close, this is the place to be.

Here a little boy approaches with a snack in his hand, and a giant manta ray swims right up to him. The calm and affectionate sea creature shows so much trust in the kid as it eats right out of his hands and allows the boy to pet it like a dog! And the boy did a great job handling the situation in a calm and friendly manner as not to spook the manta ray.

This is truly a moment he’ll never forget!

While stingrays are normally curious and friendly creatures, you still need to use caution when approaching any wild animal. The level of trust and familiarity seen here is certainly a result of these types of interactions developing over a long period of time. Like any animal, they will defend themselves if they feel they are being threatened.

Lazy Dog Won’t Budge From The Bed, But Mom Knows How To Get Him To Move

Once a dog tries out a human bed, there’s no turning back. Why go back to that boring old dog bed? This is new and exciting! It’s like they say, “The grass is always greener on the other side.” Most people don’t seem to mind that their pets want to be on their beds, but it can become a problem when trying to change out the sheets, such as in the video below.

Max the yellow Lab is living the good life. He doesn’t care that the bed doesn’t have sheets on it. The mattress will do just fine for this afternoon nap! But mom wants to get the household chores done so that she can sit down and relax for the rest of the day. So mom asks the lazy pooch politely to get off the bed.

“C’mon, big baby. Get off mama’s bed.” Max isn’t having it. But mom has some tricks up her sleeve, including bribery. “You want a treat? Would you get off the bed for a treat?” The only reaction she gets from that is some serious side-eye. The dog seems pretty determined to stay put!

She grabs the stubborn dog’s paw and gives it a shake as she lets out a chuckle. She’s going to have to pull out the big guns for this one. She hates to do it as she doesn’t like to have to tease her good boy, but desperate times call for desperate measures. She says the magic phrase, and the dog is up and running! πŸ˜€
