One afternoon in Tuckahoe, NY, the Police Department got a call about a barking dog on the loose. They found an 11-year-old pit bull named Sadie, and were able to return her to her home. First they thought “Sadie was being a bad girl” by escaping, but soon found out she was trying to help her family. After walking the perimeter of the house, they smelled an odor of gas coming from an open basement window. The Fire Department and Con Edison later determined there was in fact, a gas leak coming from the basement. Police initially had written a summons for having an unleashed dog in the area, but one of the officers on the scene ripped it up after the gas leak was discovered. Turns out Sadie was a hero!
