"Heroica" actuación de nuestro #Compañerosde4Patas Poncho, que no dudó ni un instante en "salvar la vida" del agente, practicando la #RCP de una manera magistral.

In a bid to save the police officer, the tiny little black dog performs a CPR by jumping up and down on his chest with the help of his front paws. The procedure does not end here, Officer Poncho then leans on officer’s face and checks whether he is breathing or not. He repeats the same trick for 3-4 times.
A few minutes later, the police officer sits up and pats Officer Poncho for his great work. With this, Officer Poncho also receives a treat for his “life-saving” skills. Officer Poncho is also wearing a blue light on his back, which is adding to the cuteness of the video.
I agree. These days, more than ever before, the best people on social media and often in life are animals who give us so much and want so very little in return.
