Dog rescued by firefighters from burning Fresno-area house looking for forever home

FRESNO, Calif. -- A dog rescued from a burning house last month needs a forever home!

Chubs, a six-year-old pit bull, was unconscious when firefighters pulled him from a house near Fresno engulfed in flames on December 23.

Crews worked to resuscitate Chubs with a respirator, and finally, he started breathing. He was the only pet in the home to survive the fire.

The Fresno Bully Rescue posted a photo of a now healthy Chubs to social media asking for help finding him a new home. Staff members say his former family was unable to keep him.

"Chubs is a fantastic dog," staff wrote on Facebook. "(He's) mellow, sleeps most of the day and other than a few bumps here and there, and heat rash from the fire, he's healthy."

"He is deaf, but that doesn't slow him down one bit," the post read.
