Rarely are calls to 911 deemed adorable, but a recent incident in Lakeville, Minnesota challenges this norm. Repeated calls to the police led to a peculiar situation where the dispatcher could only hear the lively barking of two dogs.
In response to multiple 911 calls from a residence, two officers were dispatched to the scene. Upon arrival, they discovered no human occupants but were greeted by two exuberant dogs. Officer Emiles Bares shared, “It was just kind of weird. Usually, people come to the door. Seeing two dogs go hyper is not something I see all the time.”
Initially assuming an accidental call, the officers were surprised to learn from dispatch that there were 16 calls made from the residence. Opting for further investigation, they contacted the homeowner, who was at work, and were granted permission to enter.
Inside, the officers encountered two friendly and energetic dogs. Officer Roberts, reflecting on the situation, stated, “Our assumption is the dogs were having a rough day, and it was the dogs that were seeking assistance through 911.”
Reporters from Fox 9 attempted to interview the dogs about their multiple 911 calls, but the canines declined to leave a comment. Their interest, however, extended to sniffing the microphone during the interaction.
The homeowner, dogs, and the inadvertently dialed cell phone’s owner later informed the media that he had learned his lesson and would keep his phone out of reach. The humorous episode prompted a reflection on the unexpected ways pets might interact with technology.
