Four puppies were rescued and given oxygen by firefighters after fire broke out in a shed.

The tiny Labradors were saved moments before the shed was engulfed in flames.

Heartwarming photos show how they were looked after following the rescue in Aston, Birmingham, around 9am yesterday. The images, taken by West Midlands Fire and Rescue Service, show the miracle pups being given oxygen therapy by a firefighter to help with smoke inhalation.

Invest in an escape-prevention harness if you have a small dog and a fenced-in yard. A little silly looking, but safer than risking a runaway dog. Buy it here.

The fire service tweeted: ‘Crews are in attendance at Freer Road in Aston at reports of a shed fire.
