This is the touching moment a dog breeder saves a puppy’s life after he was born without a heartbeat.

In scenes reminiscent of the beloved Disney movie 101 Dalmatians, TikToker Liam Paws can be seen holding the little dog in a towel before giving him mouth-to-mouth after the dog became stuck in the birth canal.

Fortunately, the 26-year-old breeder from Norwich brought the puppy back to life in a video viewed more than 2.5 million times.

Liam said: “This video was a time when I was reviving a puppy for a client whose dog was going into labour, and I was helping with this. The puppy was stillborn and I had to bring him back to life after two minutes and three seconds, and that’s what I did.

“At that moment I was very focused and had tunnel vision. He didn’t have much room for emotional thoughts: I had a responsibility and a job to do, and an innocent life depended on me.’

Many comments drew parallels between the video and a scene from a famous Disney movie, with one saying: “It’s crazy, in 101 Dalmatians the animation team did this process correctly.”

In the 1961 animated classic, Roger uses a towel to stimulate one of Pongo’s stillborn puppies, bringing him back to life to the delight of his mother, who watched him like in Liam’s video.

The scene was replicated in the 1996 live-action remake of 101 Dalmatians with Jeff Daniels playing Roger.

The action of rubbing a stillborn puppy with a towel is known as “puppy working” and works by stimulating and drying the skin.

Other comments pointed out the mother’s alarmed face fixated on her puppy as she watched Liam try to save him.

Liam has since posted updates on the pup, saying he is “perfectly healthy and doing amazing.”
