A Michigan animal control officer saved a terrier mix who had been trapped in a burning home.  While en route to a veterinary hospital, Valentino stopped breathing, but the heroic officer pulled over and performed mouth-to-mouth until he was revived.

Southfield Animal Control Officer Robert White was called to the scene of a burning home, where 11-year-old terrier mix Valentino had been rescued.  The little guy was alert and breathing, but was taken to a vet.

On the way he collapsed and stopped breathing.  White immediately pulled over and administered CPR on Valentino, which revived him.  He was rushed to an oxygen chamber at the vet, and is expected to fully recover.

  3. Not everyone knows how to do this, or would even do it if they knew! Thank you so much for saving this little one’s life. You are a hero and an awfully good guy. I wish we had more people like you as Animal Control Officers across the country. There are some real evil monsters out there. You could show them how it’s really done!

  4. My new hero! Thank you, you’ve been the one positive thing I’ve heard about in the news for a long time.

  5. This is a real ACO. Not some of these subhumans who take these jobs so they can control.
    This guy is the real thing, with the health and safety of his charges first in his mind.
    Great job
