Buddy had been hiding from the fire and was found unconscious behind the sofa.

Whilst other firefighters began extinguishing the fire, one firefighter remained outside the property giving Buddy oxygen through one of the specialist Smokey Paws animal rescue masks.

Buddy was taken to the vets and was given further treatment and is now getting back to himself.

Buddy’s owner Charlotte said: “I’m so glad that Buddy is alright as it was heartbreaking seeing him like he was.

“I want to say thank you to the fire service and to my neighbour who told firefighters to go back in as without her Buddy might not have been saved.

“The vets did amazing and without them he wouldn’t be back to himself.”
