MADRID -- (WSOC) -- A police dog in Spain showed he's ready to save lives at a moment's notice.
His name is Poncho, and during a demonstration session, he performed a canine version of cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
During the demonstration, Poncho's handler pretends to have a medical emergency and collapses. Poncho, sporting a vest with a blue emergency light strapped on it, jumps into action.
The dog runs over and begins jumping repeatedly on the officer's chest. He then put his head on the officer's neck -- a move that looked as if Pancho could be checking for a pulse or breath.
The video of the demonstration was posted to Instagram by the Madrid Police Department.

"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. El perro es el único ser en el mundo que te amará más de lo que se ama a sí mismo- John Billings#Adopta pic.twitter.com/yeoEwPkbRc
