A three-year-old French bulldog showing signs of hypoxia and in apparent breathing distress while on a Jet Blue flight from Florida to Massachusetts on Thursday, was rescued by some very responsive and compassionate crew members.
According to ABCNews, the Frenchie named Darcy began having breathing difficulties, and her owner, Michele Burt noted the dog’s tongue had turned blue.
“We all are affected by cabin pressure and oxygen fluctuations, human, canine and feline, etc., but the fact that the Attendants were responsive and attentive to the situation my have saved Darcy’s life,” Michele wrote on Facebook with photos of Darcy receiving oxygen from a plastic mask.
I placed the mask over her face, and within a few minutes she became alert and after a short time she didn’t want the mask. I believe Renaud and Diane saved a life, some may reduce the value of the life because Darcy is a canine, I do not.”
The crew member, Renaud Fenster stated he saw the dog out of her crate during the flight and having a French bulldog of his own, noticed the dog didn’t look well as she panted very rapidly and uncontrollably. First he thought the dog had been overheating and brought some ice, but when that didn’t seem to help, he notified the captain that he needed to use oxygen. The dog felt better almost immediately.
Many thanks to the awesome crew of Jet Blue who went out of their way to help.
