    Smile Injured Dog Limps Into SoCal Hospital Waiting Room

    POSTED: 8:16 am PDT October 6, 2006
    UPDATED: 8:23 am PDT October 6, 2006

    An injured 6-year-old German shepherd mix limped into a hospital waiting room after apparently being struck by a car, according to animal control officials. Buddy the dog limped into emergency at Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Bellflower on Wednesday and sat in the waiting area at about 1 p.m., officials said.We were on a routine assignment, and we got a Code 2 that a dog had wandered into the hospital," said Wendy Alexander of the animal control unit. "When we walked in, he was laying on his bad hip. At that time, we didn't know that there was an injury. He was shaking. I thought, he knew he needed help, and he knew where to get it."

    Hospital officials called the Southeast Area Animal Control Authority in Downey, and agency officials picked up Buddy and brought him to the shelter for treatment of a fracture.

    "We don't know where he got hit by a car, but we're happy he chose the right place to get help," Capt. Aaron Reyes, SEAACA's director of operations, told the Whittier Daily News. more at link:http://www.nbc11.com/news/10016720/detail.html

    I believe in closure, not forgiveness. I'm also unapologetically judgemental.

    I just love stories like this LinasK! Thanks for posting it. I'm quite the animal lover as I think most on websleuths are.

    German Shepherds have always been my favorite dog and they are so smart. But this is just extra amazing.

    I think animals are a lot smarter than most humans give them credit for. And of course they do have such good instincts.
