It was happy tails all round when the Santa Monica Fire Department came to the rescue of an unconscious dog discovered in a burning apartment.
SMFD responded to a call at the corner of 2nd and Hill streets on Saturday morning reports KTLA 5, where they discovered a female boxer behind a mattress.
The dog, named Stella, was unconscious after inhaling the smoke. Luckily, firefighters carried her to safety and used a pet oxygen mask to resuscitate her.
Stella’s owners apparently weren’t home, so she was taken to a nearby animal hospital to recuperate. No other injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is still under investigation.
