Dog rescued from SoCal house fire

FRESNO, Calif.

Firefighters found the family's dog unresponsive on the floor of the burning home. But they used a breathing device that's specially designed for canines to resuscitate the ten year old Boxer named Elmo.

His owner says she was terrified her beloved pet wasn't going to survive...

"It was like seeing my child there. It was devastating." "When he was put on the stretcher I did go over and call his name to let him know I was there," Sara Neal said.

Sunday morning Elmo was doing much better. He limps a little from arthritis, but not from the fire.
