Bulldog saved by tiny oxygen mask on JetBlue flight

Michelle and Steven Burt were on a JetBlue flight from Florida to MA last week when they noticed their dog Darcy seemed distressed, according to a letter from Mrs Burt published on The Everyday Jumpseater's Facebook page.

Three-year-old Darcy and her owner were flying from Florida to MA on Thursday when the pup's tongue and gums started to turn blue inside her carrier, according to ABC News. Her tongue began to turn blue and she was having difficulty breathing.

Darcy, a three-year-old French bulldog, started panting heavily on her flight from Orlando to MA last week.

Crew member Renaud Spencer holds Darcy after the dog was feeling better.

'Renaud, who explained that he also had a French Bulldog " Penelope" brought a small oxygen tank with a mask attached and offered it saying "maybe this will help".

Steven and Michelle Burt were traveling from Florida to Worcester when Darcy started suffering from a lack of oxygen.

These flight attendants are being hailed for looking after their passengers - no matter their species - during their time of need. The letter was shared on Facebook by a crew member of another airlines and images of Darcy in her oxygen mask have spread across social media. After Darcy breathed through the mask for a few minutes, she became alert and returned to normal.

"I believe Renaud and Diane saved a life, some may reduce the value of the life because Darcy is a canine, I do not", Mrs Burt wrote.

Burt ended her letter by confirming that Darcy "has made a complete recovery".

Fenster told "Good Morning America" he'd never seen anything like Darcy's case in 15 years working for an airline.

Darcy is fully healthy once again now, happily chasing squirrels in her yard, says Burt. "I brought the dog some ice, and that didn't do anything".

"We all want to make sure everyone has a safe and comfortable fight, including those with four legs", JetBlue said in a statement to ABC News.
