Banjo the nine-month-old German Wirehaired Pointer has constantly had a fantastic nose, also for a dog! But who would’ve guessed one day that skill would certainly save a life?
As Banjo and Father were out doing some cross-country skiing one day near their home in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, the dog worked up his tail after capturing an aroma and took off running towards the timbers.
Dad knew this meant something was there, so he complied with along. And there in the snow he saw a furry gold head pop up from the burrow the puppy had actually dug to sleep in. The lost pup was scared and cold and wouldn’t allow anyone close, so the man called pet control. They had the ability to get in touch with the canine’s owners, and the noise of their voices seemed to give the dog some life!
He learned the dog’s name was Louie, and the puppy had gone missing from a nearby canine park days ago. After a snowstorm came through the area, it made finding the canine even more tough. In fact, Mother was out with a search party when she got the call that Louie had actually been found. She came travelling via the snow for the half-hour trip to rejoin with him, and all was now well with the globe!
Today, Louie is secure at home thanks to Banjo, the dog with the super-smelling nose!.
