This week’s shout out for the Muttropolis pack’s favorite story goes out to Buddy, an uber-smart German Shepard who remembered his training and saved his owner’s life by calling, yes, calling 911 when the man had a seizure.

Buddy has apparently been there before for his owner, Joe Stalnaker, who frequently suffers from seizures, according to police officers.

On a recording of the 911 call, Buddy is heard whimpering and barking after the dispatcher answers and repeatedly asks if the caller needs help. Police were sent to Stalnaker’s and after about three minutes Buddy is heard barking loudly after the officers arrived. Stalnaker is OK.

For being at the bark and call at the right time, here’s to Buddy!
