At least one Ottawa police dog has been a very, very good dog this week.
Ottawa police say that one of the dogs from their K9 unit was able to save a woman from suicide on Wednesday.
When police arrived at the scene, responding to a call about a woman threatening to harm herself, they were unable to find her. They do not have a dog’s nose, however. Once the K9 unit was called in, police were able to locate her in a nearby bush.
“The quick action of these frontline officers and the K9 unit undoubtedly led to the woman’s survival,” said police in a statement.
This is the second time this year that a police dog has saved a life — police say that earlier this year, their K9 unit was able to locate a man who had also attempted suicide, in the woods.
