Dog Calls 911

August 09, 2005, New Jersey - A woman has ended up on the wrong side of the law after teaching her dog how to call police in an emergency.

Sylvia D'Antonio, 46, of Lake Parsippany, had a lot of explaining to do after an exercise in teaching her dog how to dial 911, ended with three police cars outside her home.

She was charged with disorderly conduct for making three late night calls, but she claims the calls were made by her German shepherd, Slayer.

"She knocks it off the hook and then she steps on it," said D'Antonio.

Local newspapers say the police dispatcher was alarmed because when the calls were picked up "the only communication was someone breathing".

The calls were traced and three squad cars raced to D'Antonio's home, only to find that there was no emergency. - Ananova
