    Default Puppy found nearly frozen in jet's cargo bay at JFK Airport is rescued

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officers at JFK Airport came to the rescue of this 6-week-old puppy on Saturday from Mexico City flight. The pooch has recovered and reunited with his owner.

    Related News A puppy found nearly frozen in a jet's cargo bay at JFK Airport was revived by U.S. customs officers who performed mouth-to-snout resuscitation, officials said Thursday.




    The 6-week-old pooch was clinging to life when it arrived in New York Saturday on a commercial flight from Mexico, officials said.
    Another puppy packed in the same portable kennel in the pressurized cargo bay died during the flight.
    Three U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers responded to the call of the popsicle pups because of a suspicion they might be drug mules.
    "No matter how uncommon the call, CBP Officers are always willing and ready to assist," said Robert Perez, director of field operations for the CBP in New York.
    When the officers determined one of the dogs was still breathing, they went into rescue mode, wrapping it in blankets and heating pads, said CBP spokesman John Saleh.
    "One of the officers did mouth-to-snout resuscitation," said Saleh, explaining the officer had been studying veterinary medicine.
    The tan puppy with a white stripe down its snout was evaluated by a veterinarian and reunited with its unidentified owner Wednesday, Saleh said.

    Pets are not fucking cargo or luggage to be stowed away in the freezing bowels of an airplane. Get a clue,people.

    Poor little puppy. Then part of me thinks: there are so many,many homeless dogs here. They had to import one??

    I'm very surprised they allowed the dogs on the plane. The couple of times I've had to ship the dogs in the hold, there were very strict rules about temperature limits (I think it was between 50 and 75). Here in NYC area we've been experiencing a real deep freeze. It was 4* F when we got up yesterday.
