Cop Follows Frantic Dog Down Street. When He Sees Where He’s Going Can’t Believe Eyes

I’m partial to Labradors. I had a sweet black Lab named Tess in my life for over 10 years. She was not only my guide dog, but my companion. Tess and I walked around college campuses and in the city. She took me safely from curb to curb as we crossed the street. She found stairways, ramps, and doors with ease.

Tess had a personality all her own. She loved to play and have fun. I couldn’t eat carrots or apple slices without sharing them with her – she wouldn’t let me!

She also always kept a watchful eye on me. Puddles of water led from her water bowl down the hallway to the doorway of whatever room I was in. Tess had to make sure I was all right.

Labs are loyal and adoring. They merely wish to please their owners.

John Boy is a sweet black Lab who had some trouble finding a permanent residence. He had been to three previous homes before finding his forever home with Krystal Lauer in Germantown, Wisconsin.

While on duty one day, Germantown police officer Jeff Gonzalez was driving down County Line Road when he saw a frantic John Boy running around barking, trying to get the attention of anyone who would listen.

“He stood there and barked a little bit, then I rolled down my window and called to him,” Officer Gonzalez recalled. “Then he wagged his tail and got more friendly until I got out of my car. And then he ran a little bit.”

Thank goodness for the officer’s astuteness. He realized John Boy needed help.

“He pointed me in the right direction,” he said.

Gonzalez followed John Boy and the pooch led him straight to the front porch of his home. There, slumped in a chair, dressed in her pajamas, and completely unresponsive, was John Boy’s owner, Krystal. She had been sitting in the 3-degree weather for what Gonzalez estimates was about an hour.

The officer explained his reaction to seeing Krystal: “To be honest with you, I thought she was dead,” he said. “And when I went up, she was very cold to the touch; her lips were blue. But I was able to determine she was breathing and had a pulse. I called for assistance, and my partner was close. So together we got her in the house.”

Thankfully, after getting her to the hospital, doctors were able to revive Krystal and determine that she would be okay.

Newly Adopted Dog Wouldn’t Stop Growling. New Owner Makes A Terrifying Discovery

No one seems to know why Kailey was at the shelter, but one thing was clear: she was hard to place. Skinny and riddled with heart worms, Kailey came to the shelter in poor shape. But worse than her physical problems was a psychological problem that kept her there for over a year.

Kailey didn’t like to be touched by people she didn’t know. The DeKalb County, Georgia, shelter people were despairing of ever placing her, and her D-day was fast approaching.

In fact, she was scheduled to be euthanized when Jacqueline Berlin and Keith Santer-Perham rescued her and became her foster parents.

At only three years of age, the shepherd mix had a lot of years ahead of her…but only if she could find a new home. That’s when Suzy Chandler stepped in.

Suzy saw something special in Kailey and knew she needed to share her life. And Kailey took right to her new owner.

Then something very strange happened. One day, Kailey was agitated. She wouldn’t quit barking and growling. Suzy didn’t know what was wrong.

Finally, she took Kailey outside, and that’s when the miracle happened. Kailey fairly drug her owner around to the side of the house and showed her a leaking gas line.

7 Adorable Signs That Your Dog Sees You As Her Pack Leader

When my family got our first puppy, my youngest sister was almost as small as she was. Of course, the puppy grew at a faster rate than the baby human and the dog was bigger and stronger in no time.

We had a running joke that my dog thought she was ranked higher than my little sister in our “family wolf pack.” Even though it was a joke, there was some truth to the matter.

Dogs are called man’s best friend for a reason, and part of it has to do with them respecting us as the alpha. Thousands of years of domestication has brought us to this point, where dogs do incredible things like save their masters from burning buildings.

Even if your dog isn’t a hero, chances are she does things to show you how much she loves and respects you as the pack leader every day.

Scroll down to learn about how your dog might be paying you respect as the alpha dog in your family pack.

How Does Pack Order Work?

We all know that dogs descended from wolves and that wolves live in packs. In the wild, pack order is important for survival.

Pack order is still important for domestic dogs who retain many wolf qualities.

According to Cesar’s Way, the pack is led by an alpha male and female, followed by betas and omegas.

Betas serve the alphas, and the omegas at the bottom of the barrel serve everyone else. With domesticated dogs, humans are part of the pack, and we hold the dominant role.

Sign 1: Your Dog Follows You Around

Does your dog follow you around? If she does, this is a sign that you are in fact the pack leader.

4-Year-Old Dumps Food On Kitchen Floor – Now Watch The Pit Bulls’ Reaction

Humans have a tendency to put things in boxes: those people are bad, this breed is aggressive, that ethnic group is violent.

But sometimes it can be helpful to take a close look at things and not give in to prejudice.

Pit bulls are one good example of a group of dogs that are often stereotyped as aggressive and dangerous – and not to mention, difficult to control.

In the clip below, however, we witness just the opposite.

In it, we watch as a 4-year-old girl spreads out dinner on the floor as 6 pit bulls wait patiently for her instructions. They are so disciplined that they are able to resist rushing in for the food, despite smelling it right in front of them.

When the young girl finally indicates that it’s time to dig in, they continue to manifest great discipline and control and don’t fight over the food, despite that they stand crowded around one pile of food.

Have a watch at the pit bulls’ impressive behavior in the video below. 

This video has received over one million of views on YouTube, with many praising how well the little girl handles the dogs.

What do you think about this sweet moment between a little girl and her dogs? Please share along if you agree this moment is impressive – from both sides!

Petition Is Going Around To Let Retiring Cop Adopt His K9 Partner. Do You Support This?

If you’ve ever spent time training or caring for a dog, you know just how emotionally attached you can become. Dogs are incredibly smart and loving, and they often become a part of the family.

This was the case for Sergeant David Evans of the West Mercia Police force in the UK. After 34 years of service, he was distraught after learning that upon retirement, he would not be able to keep his four year old police dog Ivy.

Read on to find out what Evans’ family is doing to help him fight for his dear companion.

After more than three decades of serving and protecting, Sergeant David Evans had finally decided to retire. However, he was disappointed to learn that leaving his job also meant leaving behind Ivy, his dedicated and beloved police dog.

Evans was so heart broken that he even offered to pay the West Mercia Police force $40,000 to replace Ivy. However, his request was still denied.

Seeing how despondent this left her father, Jennie Evans started an online petition at change.org to help convince West Mercia Police that her father should keep Ivy. The petition has already received 26,000 signature and reads:

“My dad Dave is a Dog Handler Sergeant for West Mercia Police. And for the past four years he has had Ivy, a police dog, by his side.

In April this year my dad is due to retire and after 34 years he has only one request, that Ivy can retire alongside him and continue to live at the family home where she has been since she was 9 months old. But West Mercia police are trying to separate Ivy and my dad.

“West Mercia Police think putting Ivy into the hands of another handler is a “sensible” thing to do, they are reluctant to take into consideration the distress and heartbreak that would be caused by removing Ivy from the loving home she has with my dad and our family,

the heartbreak – not just for us but for Ivy, anyone who owns a dog knows the bond that is made and the distress that can be caused by separation. In the past four years, they have spent every day together and have created a special and unique bond with one another.

It is truly something you have to see to believe. Before joining the Police Force Ivy had already had 2 previous homes, with us she was able to finally be in a loving home where she could settle into a routine when she wasn’t on duty. She now loves nothing more than her endless walks around the fields with Dave.

“It is also extremely sad that this is how West Mercia Police repays a man who has dedicated 34 years of his life to the police Force.

My dad has even offered to buy Ivy or cover expenses of another dog to replace her job and they have even refused this!!

Please help us to try and make West Mercia Police do the right thing for our beloved Ivy, help make our Dad’s retirement the special achievement it should be and finish his career with Ivy by his side.”

While Jennie’s petition has received an overwhelming response, West Mercia Police have not been swayed by her efforts.

They have remained steadfast in their position, responding to her call to action on Facebook with, “The number of signatures is not the main driver – it is what is best for the animal and for the community we serve.

It might of (sic) been helpful to have raised the matter directly with the Chief Constable, before starting the public campaign.”

Pit Bull Who Saved Little Boy And Bit Mom Who Threw Him Into River Learns His Fate

A pit bull will be returned to his owners after saving a 9-year-old boy that was thrown into a river by his mother.

Authorities said the pit bull, whose name is Buddy, will not be put down for mauling a 9-year-old boy because he was attempting to save the child’s life after he was thrown into a river by his mother, the Daily Mail reported.

‘”It is likely that the dog was acting in reasonable defense of the nine-year-old boy that was subsequently hospitalized,’” 

Murray River Council interim general manager Margot Stork said in a press release, according to the Riverine Herald. ‘

“The NSW Police have advised council that they will not be seeking an order to destroy this animal.’”

‘”The dog is well and presently being cared for in a Murray River Council facility,’” Stork added.

‘”Since the incident, we have microchipped the dog and are working with the dog’s owner to register the dog and set up the appropriate conditions to enable the dog to return home.

‘”The owner has visited the dog at council’s facility and is working with us to ensure compliance with all obligations under the Companion Animals Act.’”

The decision came shortly after a petition to “Help Save Buddy” was started. In the description, the petition recounted the incident, and made the argument that Buddy was indeed trying to save the boy:

On the 2nd of march 2017 a mother of 2 has attempted to drown her children in the Murray river at moama.

In this selfish mothers attempt to drown her 2 boys buddy the dog has reacted and attempted to save the boys in doing so he has bit the eldest boy in his rescue attempts unfortunately he was unable to save the youngest boy and has also bit the mother.

Buddy is his name and he is a pitbull cross and has since been seized from his owners who are distraught by not only what this mother has done but also that our dog has been seized when he should be [labeled] a hero instead.

Buddy doesn’t have a history of being a dangerous dog and most certainly hasn’t ever bitten anyone and has never been seized before for anything.

Buddy is a member of our family and has grown up around children his whole life and has been the most [gentele] dog, he has clearly seen a child in distress and attempted to help,

dogs don’t have hands to help like us humans they have to use their teeth and in doing so it’s being [portrayed] as [if] this dog has attacked the young boy.

The petition collected more than 45,000 signatures before being closed.

The 9-year-old boy is currently being treated for dog bites at the Royal Children’s Hospital. The 5-year-old’s body was found in the river on March 4.

Their mother, whose name was not released, has been charged with murder and attempted murder.
