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.
