Buddy – the Alaskan Hero Dog

A fire erupts in a workshop in a some-what-remote residential area in Alaska. A man is burned in the fire and his German Shepherd ventures out to seek help.

Fortunately, his neighbor called for help. But the State Troopers were having trouble finding the home, until they spotted Buddy at a snowy intersection and he began to lead the car to the fire.

Yes – it takes an ability to make decisions and it takes an understanding that someone needs help to do what Buddy did in this case. Animals are more than just instinct and fur, as some might want us all to believe.

  1. I enjoyed the video – not only for the story, but because it reminded my of the shepherd-husky mix that my family lived with for 10 years before losing her to cancer. She had that same ability to problem solve, especially when it came to doing what she considered to be her more important job: protecting us.
