Tender moment breathless newborn husky is revived by owner

This is the tender moment a newborn husky puppy that was not breathing was brought back to life with CPR.

The five-year-old mother dog named Brownie gave birth to six puppies in Samut Sakhon, central Thailand, on October 22.

But the runt of the litter, the weakest of the baby dogs, was not breathing or moving and her eyes were closed. Naturally, she had been rejected by the mother to focus on the other stronger puppies.

However, owner Nontawit Vasee, 30, tenderly cradled the struggling puppy and performed his own make-shift CPR and mouth to mouth resuscitation by blowing air into the female dog's mouth and massaging her heart.

Miraculously, the puppy spluttered back to life and after six weeks she is as strong and as healthy as her five siblings.

Nontawit named the survivor ''Katy'' and says that she is his favourite.

He said: ''I was so relieved when the puppy came back to life. She was not breathing and looked very weak. We did CPR for about ten minutes, just putting air into her mouth and rubbing her heart.

''I am so thankful that we never gave up on her. Now she is exactly like her brothers and sisters. She is strong and has a lot of energy.

''Katy is six weeks old now and she is my favourite of all the dogs. She's so beautiful. We're very thankful to have her.''
