Dog dials 911 to save life



Joe Stalnaker adopted his German shepherd, Buddy, when Buddy was an 8-week-old puppy, and he taught him to retrieve the phone when he started experiencing seizure symptoms. If Stalnaker blacks out or is unable to make the call, Buddy is trained to use his teeth to hit a speed-dial button that calls 911. In 2008, the 18-month-old dog called the emergency line, and began whimpering into the phone. Emergency responders arrived on the scene a few minutes later and found Stalnaker unconscious, but after a couple days in the hospital, he recovered.
"Buddy, he basically gives me my independence," Stalnaker later said. "He's my world. He's my best friend, no question. He's always there, and I just hope I can be as good to him as he's been to me."
Buddy isn't the first dog to dial 911 for help. In 1996, an Irish setter placed a 911 call when her owner's breathing machine cut off, and in 2004 a Rottweiler not only placed a call when her owner fell out of her wheelchair, but also opened the door for police officers.
