Police Dog has Pacemaker
Police Dog Back On Beat Thanks To Pacemaker
Device Made For Humans Has 'Blaze' Doing Duty Once Again
(CBS) NEW YORK A dynamic dog now has a new lease on life. You'll never imagine what's keeping this canine cop alive.
Energetic, adorable, accomplished -- all these things describe 4-year-old Blaze the police dog. Just ask his partner, Capt. Efrain Madera.
"He's my partner. My friend. He's like a son," Madera said.
Together the pair work the sometimes violent and dangerous Rikers Island prison yards for the Department Of Corrections.

I was reading about pacemakers for pets a few years ago and the article said that they actually use pacemakers that have been removed from people. I guess pacemakers need to be replaced every so often, but they are still in good working order, so they use them in pets.______________________________

IF only everyone would treat their dog this way, the world would be a better place, IMHO.
