In a demonstration to a crowd, an officer falls to the ground and pretends to be unconscious and unresponsive. Poncho, a police dog of the Municipal Police of Madrid, sprints to the officer’s rescue, sporting a special harness with a flashing emergency light on his back.
Poncho hops up and down on the officer’s chest repeatedly, stopping only to place his ear by the cop’s neck and mouth to listen for breathing. After only a moment of this, the crowd goes wild, giggling and cheering Poncho on.
Poncho continues his valiant efforts until the officer stands up. The officer praises Poncho’s great work with a treat.
Four Paws Up
The Municipal Police of Madrid shared a video of Poncho’s spectacular work in a tweet, claiming that Poncho “did not hesitate for an instant.” Of course, this impressive (and adorable) video has gone viral, racking up shares and likes around the world.
"Heroica" actuación de nuestro #Compañerosde4Patas Poncho, que no dudó ni un instante en "salvar la vida" del agente, practicando la #RCP de una manera magistral.
