The French Bulldog, named Darcy, was on a JetBlue flight from Florida to MA on Thursday, when she started showing signs of illness, owner Michele Burt wrote in a letter to the airline.

Three-year-old Darcy and her owner were flying from Florida to MA on Thursday when the pup's tongue and gums started to turn blue inside her carrier, according to ABC News. When Burt opened the flap to give the pup some air, she realized Darcy's tongue was blue.

Darcy, the French bulldog owned by Steven and Michele Burt of Westminster, Mass., receives oxygen on a JetBlue flight Thursday, July 5, 2018.One of JetBlue's flight attendants poses with Darcy after the bulldog received oxygen on a JetBlue flight Thursday, July 5, 2018.

When a flight attendant "politely" told Burt that it was airline policy that the dog remain under the seat in its carrier, Burt apparently told them that Darcy 'appeared to be in medical distress'. Within a couple of minutes Spencer and Asher arrived at Burt's seat with bags of ice to help calm the dog down.

"We all are affected by cabin pressure and oxygen fluctuations, human, canine and feline, etc., but the fact that the attendants were responsive and attentive to the situation may have saved Darcy's life", Michele Burt wrote on Facebook.

The crew came to the rescue with an oxygen mask for Darcy.

These flight attendants are being hailed for looking after their passengers - no matter their species - during their time of need.

Darcy was treated for hypoxia - a lack of oxygen in the body - by her owner who held the oxygen mask over the dog's face. "I believe [crew members] Renaud and Diane saved a life".

Burt reported back that Darcy has since "made a complete recovery", according to the letter.

Fenster told "Good Morning America" he'd never seen anything like Darcy's case in 15 years working for an airline.

"I decided that we needed to consider using oxygen to support the animal".

Their quick thinking was lauded in a statement released by JetBlue to ABC News.

Burt wrote that Darcy has completely recovered from the incident and noted that she will not be flying with the dog going forward, unless her vet okays it.
