The flight crew on a Jet Blue flight are being credited with saving the life of a French Bulldog having a hard time breathing.
Michele and Steven Burt were on a Jet Blue flight Thursday from Florida to Massachusetts when they noticed something wrong with their French bulldog Darcy.
“It actually fit her face really well because she’s got a round face,” she told 7News. “You couldn’t help but notice the change in her eyes. I know it’s not a child or a person but she is a family member. I just felt very grateful.”
Snub-nosed dogs include: American Bulldogs, Boston Terriers, Boxers, English or French Bulldogs, King Charles Spaniels, Lhasa Apsos, Pugs, Shar-Peis and Shih Tzus.
In recent years, several airlines have banned the bulldogs, pugs and other brachycephalic breeds from planes because of the health risks to the dogs.
Darcy is expected to make a full recovery.
