Stiff, unresponsive and gasping for breath, it looked like the end was near for Mandy.
It was only when she saw her best friend, Bianca Otley, that she raised her head and, with the help of paramedic Sandy Macken, began fighting for life.
Mandy is a four-year-old pure-bred greyhound who was rescued from a futon factory fire in Marrickville and resuscitated by paramedics after 45 minutes.
Firefighters found Mandy lying underneath a bed in a dark, smoke-filled room as the Fantasy Futon factory burnt down.
