    Dog leads responders to burning shop & injured master , AK

    A real "What's wrong Lassie, did Timmy fall in the welll?" story.

    Troopers say Buddy, a german sheppard, and his owner, 23-year-old Ben Heinrichs, were in the family workshop on the Caswell Lakes property when a heater ignited chemicals.

    Heinrichs sustained minor flash burns on his face, dashed out as the fire grew. He then told Buddy "we need to get help."

    The dog took off and eventually found a trooper responding to a call about the fire. Buddy led the officer through winding back roads to the house and the trooper guided firefighters to the scene.

    What a great buddy! IIRC, when the Trooper responded he was completely lost, his GPS had failed and dispatch was not able to help....then he saw Buddy on the road barking. I heard that Troopers presented Buddy with an engraved silver dog dish.

    Here is the video of that. He also got a big chew bone.
