It was a call the emergency operator never expected to receive. Instead of tears, screams or a plea for help, she could hear only barking and a distinctly canine whimper.
Anywhere else and the emergency services might have hung up, blaming a prankster. But the specially-trained German shepherd dog Buddy had already saved his master three times by making emergency calls to police with his teeth.
Very cool! Man's best friend, indeed.
The ones I pity are the ones who never stick out their neck for something they believe, never know the taste of moral struggle, and never have the thrill of victory. - Jonathan Kozol
What was that weird noise on the phone about half way through, was Buddy trying to send a fax as well?!
That noise you heard was a TTY device to check for possible hearing impaired on other line. That agency is the next city north of the agency where I work. That dispatcher should be commended for not giving up on the call!! Plus, the dog is awesome!!
