Dogs call 911 five times

LAKEVILLE, Minn. (FOX 9) - It must have been a "ruff" morning for a duo of dogs in Lakeville, Minnesota that called 911 more than a dozen times while their owners were gone, prompting police to respond to their home.

It turned out the Papillion and the hound are the newest “pawtners in crime.”

“We were dispatched to a 911 hang up call at a residence in Lakeville,” said Officer Michelle Roberts of the Lakeville Police Department.

Officers Roberts and her partner Officer Emily Bares have checked out their share of 911 hang up calls, but not like this.

“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,” said Officer Bares.

The officers rang the doorbell, walked around the house and were about to clear the call when they learned these pups had been hounding dispatch.

“Shortly after clearing, dispatch advised us they had multiple additional 911 calls and all they could hear in the background was dogs barking,” said Officer Roberts.


That tweet by police at the end was awesome. :lol:
