Viral video of police dog in Madrid performing CPR

In a video that went viral on Twitter last week by the Municipal Police of Madrid, an officer is shown falling to the ground and landing on his back.  A voice called out for immediate medical intervention and a K-9 officer named Poncho ran to his side, jumping up and down on the officer, mimicking chest compressions.

“This is the ‘Heroic’ performance from our #Compañerosde4patas#Poncho from @policiamadrid’s canine division, who did not hesitate for a second to ‘save the life’ of the agent, giving us a masterclass in #CPR.

– A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself – John Billings,” Policia de Madrid posted on their Facebook page with the video.

According to the organization,  they taught Poncho the steps for performing CPR. Pedro even appears to check if his patient is breathing and then returns to his chest compressions by using his weight on the man’s chest.

The video’s purpose is directed at encouraging pet adoptions.

At the end Pedro does receive a treat. Dogs are truly our best friends.

Check out the video:

    What an amazing dog and how they can be trained to give life saving CPR. Dogs are very loyal and love doing their job.

    Oh, how “cute” (puke!). More public-brainwashing P.R. for the K9 programs, while they continue their Koehler-based cruelty to the dogs behind the scenes.
