Attention-Loving Dogs Call 911

April Livingston | March 9th, 2019

It’s no secret that two doggy siblings just love being showered with attention. Remy and Bomber went to extreme lengths for attention recently and it escalated to the point where the police even got involved. It all started one morning when the Lakeville Police Department in Minnesota received a very odd phone call. The 911 dispatcher answered a call and there was no one on the line—it was completely silent. It’s policy for police to follow up on that type of call, so officers Emily Bares and Michelle Roberts went out to the home that had placed the call. When they arrived, the home was empty and all the doors were locked. The officers realized it was impossible that no one was home.

By the time the officers arrived, three more 911 calls had been placed from inside the home. In a few of the calls, dogs could be heard barking but there were no human voices on the line. So, the officers walked around the property and when nothing seemed out of place, they left. But, the phone calls kept coming in to 911. Officers decided they needed to go into the home, so they were able to contact the homeowner and get the code for the garage keypad. They were worried a human was inside and couldn’t talk but needed help. When officers made their way inside, they were greeted with excitement by two dogs.

The pair, a hound mix and a Papillon, were timid and barked at first, but then warmed up for pets from the officers. They walked around the home to try to figure out how the dogs were placing phone calls and soon found a forgotten cell phone on a desk. It was set to “emergency call only” so they dogs could’ve hit the screen and it would have dialed 911. It was hard to believe the 45 pound hound mix could jump up and place the calls, but somehow he did it. In total, the dogs placed 16 calls to 911 that day, but everyone is relieved that there was no emergency—just a few mischievous dogs!
