Dogs Trust Honours Hero Police Dog Injured in Attack

22 May

Aman, winner of 'Hero Service Dog'Dogs go to incredible heights to save “their humans” in the time of danger. When they are trained to do a job, their need to please comes forward and they perform to the best of their abilities. Below is the story of “Aman,” a German Shepard police dog who helped restrain a man being arrested. Following his story are the stories of other dogs who are being awarded as well, once again proving that dogs do more to save us that we can ever thank them for.

“A hero police dog that survived a stabbing attack while on duty has been awarded for his bravery.

Aman from Suffolk Police was helping with a man’s arrest when he was badly hurt last year. He was knifed several times as he gripped on to the man’s arm, but still carried on.

The German shepherd’s since recovered and continues to work with his handler, who was also injured in the arrest.

Now Aman’s been named ‘Hero Service Dog’ at the Dogs Trust Honours 2012.”

 

Izzy, winner of 'Hero Pet Dog'
“Izzy saved her owner’s life – twice!

Other winners included Izzy, who saved the life of her diabetic owner twice – alerting her owner’s wife when she noticed something was wrong.”

 

Ajay, winner of 'Dogged Devotion'
“Ajay retrained to be a guide dog

Ajay from Kent won the ‘Dogged Devotion’ category. His family’s mother Tony has epilepsy and Ajay warns her before she has a seizure.

But when Tony became blind, Ajay became her guide dog without any special training. He also supported daughter Mimi when she needed heart surgery.”

Not all the winners were dogs – there was a human winner, Carlos. The 15-year-old was honoured for his volunteer work caring for unwanted and abandoned dogs.

He’s taken in several elderly dogs and has even raised money by doing a bike ride all the way from John O’Groats to Land’s End.”
