This is one VERY lucky dog!
George, a basset hound in northern England, found himself in a sticky situation when a phone cord wrapped around his neck.
Sensing his distress, the quick thinking dog dialed 999, the British emergency line.
Or…it was a stroke of luck on George's part!
The emergency operator only heard gasps and heavy breathing on the line and West Yorkshire police rushed to the house. A neighbor used his spare key and the coppers burst in laughter after rescuing the distressed dog.
His owner, Lydia Brown, 18, says her dog was fortunate he hit the right button. She says:
He's really dopey and just likes to chew socks.
And now, he knows how to call the police!
