MANCHESTER, N.H. (CBS) — A family lost their home in an early morning fire in Manchester, New Hampshire, but they are grateful firefighters were able to save their pet dog.

The Shiba Inu named Nickel was found by firefighters. He was unconscious on the living room floor.

They were able to use an oxygen mask made for pets to get him breathing again.

“They did some compressions on the dog and brought the dog back,” said Manchester Fire Department District Chief Jim Michael.

Nickel was brought to Advanced Veterinary Care in Manchester.

“He’s doing well now,” said technician Sarah Jervinis. “He’s drinking some water, he’s not having as much difficulty breathing, he’s bright and alert.”

Nickel is still coughing from the smoke inhalation and has an IV hooked up to his leg but he is expected to make a full recovery.
