|Dog dials 911 to save owner|
A German shepherd saved his owner's life by calling the emergency services and barking down the line to raise the alarm.
Joe Stalnaker, of Scottsdale, Arizona, has suffered seizures for ten years after sustaining a head injury during a military training exercise.
He adopted Buddy as an eight-week-puppy and trained him to use the phone if he began to have an attack, reports Sky News.
So when he got into difficulties, Buddy knew exactly what to do - hit the speed-dial button on the phone for 911.
On the tape of his call, he can be heard whimpering and barking after the operator answers and repeatedly asks if the caller needs help.
Police were sent to Mr Stalnaker's home, and after about three minutes Buddy can be heard barking loudly when the officers arrived.
Sergeant Mark Clark, of Scottsdale police, said Mr Stalnaker spent two days in a hospital and recovered from the seizure.
"It's pretty incredible," Sgt Clark said. "Even the veteran dispatchers - they haven't heard of anything like this."
Mr Stalnaker's address is flagged in the force's computer system with a notification that a trained dog might call 911 when the owner was incapacitated.
