"Me and firefighter Hudson started making our search through the house. ... And we go to an animal cage," firefighter Thomas Mason told WTVR.
In the cage, firefighters found the unresponsive dog, WTVR reported.
“It didn’t have a heartbeat,” firefighter Clayton Deguentz told WTVR. “It wasn’t breathing at all.”
First responders administered CPR and used a pet mask to give the dog oxygen, WTVR reported.
By the time the owner came home, the dog was up and walking, WTVR reported.
