Buddy, a dog specially trained to call 911 when his owner suffers seizures grabbed the phone and whimpered for help. Stalnaker said he trained his dog to recognize when he had a seizure and respond by grabbing the phone and bringing it to him. When Buddy hears the operator, he puts the phone down and whimpers as if he was in distress.
“He doesn’t actually sit there and dial 911, but whenever he picks up the phone, one of his teeth inevitably hits the number, and if it’s held down for more than three seconds, it dials the police department,” Stalnaker said.
The 911 system matches the call to the address and dispatches emergency help. Buddy rode in the ambulance with Stalnaker to the hospital, and both were back home two days later.
