Stray Dog Revived by Medics in Texas

We can probably all agree that first responders are true heroes in every sense of the word due to the care they provide for people all over the world. There are plenty of stories about their heroic acts and the ways in which they work to save the lives of their fellow humans when there are serious accidents or other serious or potentially deadly situations that occur in life. However, have you ever heard a story or tale of how first responders took their jobs so seriously that they also worked to save the lives of animals in their community as well? There is one such story out of the state of Texas that is quite amazing, of a group of first responders helping out an animal in their time of need.

Recently, a group of Emergency Medical Service (also known as EMS) professionals used their skills and training to help a dog in need when he was discovered lying on the ground. In Taylor County, Texas, a stray dog was in desperate need of help from humans. The EMS staff noticed a dog lying by a fence near their property and jumped immediately into action. The men and women noticed the dog looked to be in a bad state, perhaps as though he had not eaten a good meal in some time and was quite tired. The dog was also not responsive, and that’s when the EMS professionals knew something had to be done.

So, they got to work. They gathered resources of the human and dog variety, giving the dog a good meal, plenty of water, and lots of TLC (tender loving care, that is) to get him back on his four paws. They also contacted their local animal rescue agency to care for the dog further and he’s now up for adoption to a good home!
