Every dog parent wants their pooch to be safe. They would do everything to ensure their safety. And we can all agree that if we see other pups in need, we will not hesitate to help because that is what we want others to do for our pup. And that’s exactly what Officer Cory Radke did.
Officer Cory Radke is a police officer residing in Caledonia, Wisconsin. He has an adorable K9 partner named Lou. Officer Radke and Lou were about to rest in their home after their shift, but as they were driving home, they received a call over the radio about a house on fire nearby.
They immediately changed their plans and rushed to the address given to them. Officer Radke was the first to arrive at the scene and saw the house burning up to its roof. Luckily, no human was at home, but the homeowner’s two senior pups were inside.
Officer Radke moved with urgency, rushed into the house, and immediately spotted one of the senior pups. Deezel, a 12-year-old Vizsla, was seen in the officer’s body camera. In the footage, Deezel was peacefully sitting on their couch, seemingly unbothered by the commotion around her.
Officer Radke was relieved when he saw the pup, but he was also confused with her lack of reaction. Still, he picked her up and brought her to safety. Once he was sure that Deezel was safe, Officer Radke ran back in the burning home, looking for anyone he could find.
As he was searching the house, Officer Radke noticed that flaming debris was starting to fall. The circumstances had become too much to handle for the brave officer without protective gear on. So, he decided to leave matters to the firefighters. As soon as the firefighters came, they were able to rescue the second pup, 12-year-old Norton, underneath a bed.
Though Lou was not part of the rescue, the pup comforted the senior pups in safety. When Officer Radke was interviewed for his brave and heroic action, he expressed that he felt for the pups because he had a dog himself. For him, his K9 is more than a partner; he is part of his family.
