The amazing German Shepherd dog calls 911 to save his owner struck by seizure. His name is Buddy. Joe Stalnaker (the owner) adopted German shepherd Buddy as an eight-week-puppy and trained him to use the phone if he began to have an attack. Mr Stalnaker, of Scottsdale, Arizona, has suffered seizures for ten years after suffering a head injury during a military training exercise. So when he got into difficulties, Buddy knew exactly what to do – hit the speed-dial button on the phone for 911. As he was trained pressed the buttons and when the operator answered he whimpered, and it was enough to save his best friend.
