Incredible dog trained to perform CPR on anyone who’s collapsed

This is the dramatic moment a dog leapt to save a police officer’s life with CPR after he ‘collapsed’ during training.

Poncho the dog sprung to action after his police human pretended to collapse during training, Metro reported.

Clearly taking on board all his CPR training, heroic Poncho can be seen performing lifesaving CPR on the officer, until the officer is ‘revived’.

People watching the performance can be heard erupting into applause, despite the display being just a simulation.

And many others seem to agree with them, judging by the incredible two million views it received since it was posted online.

Tweeting about the smart dog, Policia de Madrid wrote: ‘Heroic’ performance of our #Compañerosde4Patas Poncho, who did not hesitate for an instant to ‘Save the Life’ of the agent, practicing #RCP in a magisterial way.’

The tweet was then signed off with a very true quote from 19th century American humorist, Josh Billings: ‘The dog is the only being in the world that will love you more than you love yourself.’

The footage led to one person writing:

‘Love this very special fur officer! Amazing that they are capable of learning and using those skills to protect and serve!!’

Another person wrote: ‘Oh my goodness! Love the way the dog jumped up and down a couple of times, then lays his head at the mouth of the policeman and then starts back up again.

‘God bless that precious dog.’

Culled from Metro

My view: Lovely dog, he is a hero. A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself. The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally. No "shithole" BS, just love.
