This video clip purportedly show the resuscitation of a dead dog, as conducted in the 1940 by Dr. S.S. Bryukhonenko at the Institute of Experimental Physiology and Therapy in the former USSR.
Mind you, it's a propaganda video from an era designed to make the Russians look good (regardless of scientific merit - some Stalin-era scientists even outright faked data to make them look good / avoid the gulags).
Before you dismiss it out of hand, however, see also this Pittsburgh Tribune article on how scientists at the Safar Center for Resuscitation Research revived dogs 3 hours after clinical death (no brain activity).
BTW, the Safar Center is named after Dr. Peter Safar, the inventor of CPR.
