What’s better than a firefighter? Two animal-loving firefighter with huge hearts.

On Tuesday in Wausau, Wisconsin, firefighters Jamie Giese and Jared Thompson were responding to a residential blaze when they found the homeowner’s seven-year-old yellow Labrador, Coda, trapped inside. Once they got him out, they performed mouth-to-nose respiration and gave him oxygen — despite having no formal training in animal rescue.

After an overnight stay in an animal hospital, Coda is just fine. Thank you, kind sirs.
