Seriously, we don’t deserve dogs. Case in point: A Very Good Boy named Poncho has taken his talents far beyond fetching mail or playing dead on command. Poncho, a police dog in Spain, is being trained to perform “CPR” on his human companions. The video of his latest practice session is unbelievably cute and definitive proof that he is not only a Good Boy, but possibly the Best Boy.
In the video, Poncho’s human partner simulates cardiac arrest by falling down on the ground. That prompts the dog to practice his skills and attempt to “resuscitate” him.
In other words, he pounces on his human’s chest with all his might. Poncho is a total natural, and you can tell he cares about his work.
Officer Poncho tries his best to jump-start the policeman’s heart with his paws, and honestly? While he may not have the CPR technique down just yet, this performance is enough to melt our hearts, if not jump-start them.
“‘Heroic’ performance of our four-pawed companion, Poncho, who did not hesitate a moment in ‘saving the life’ of the agent, practicing CPR in a masterful way,” the police department captioned the video.
Give him all the treats.
