And even the pups’ owner found the explanation for the 911 calls unlikely.
“He didn’t believe it was the dogs at all until he heard the 911 tape with the dogs barking in the background and you can tell they’re really close,” Roberts said. “Then he seemed kind of baffled.”
“The homeowner did take the phone into AT&T to find out if there was anything wrong with the phone,” Roberts added. “They confirmed that there was not.”
After 20 years on the force, having to apprehend a duo of animals was a first for Roberts.
In total, the dispatcher received 16 calls to 911 from the attention-seeking pooches. And while this is not how Roberts usually spends her days, she was glad the “emergency” turned out to be an accident.
“It is kind of unheard of for them to be up to those kinds of shenanigans,” Roberts said. “It’s mind-blowing, really.”
