FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA. (WSVN) - A dog has been rescued from danger.

Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue found a bulldog Monday, laying on a sidewalk and barely breathing.

He was suffering from heat exhaustion.

The bulldog was left by his owner, who was unable to care for him after becoming homeless.

“When they got the dog back here the dog’s respiration still wasn’t exactly right, there was still a lot of panning. They had great concerns for the dog. While they called around different veterinaries, to see who was open and what they can possibly do, they decided to put their paramedics skills to work and use some treatments. They began cooling the dog down and they started an IV, put the dog on some oxygen and within a couple of hours the dog came around,” said FLFR Battalion Chief Stephen Gollan.

The crew nursed the dog back to health before taking him to his new home, a English bulldog rescue in Saint Lucie.
