Bo the dog committed the ultimate act of betrayal to his owner, Edward Melvin Henderson, when he led Alabama police to his hiding place during a search of his home.
Having a dog in your life is awesome. They are loyal.
Loyal to a fault!!!
A suspected meth dealer was turned into police by his own dog Tuesday after the pooch eagerly led officers, tail wagging, to his hiding place.
Edward Henderson ultimately ended up being betrayed by his best friend soon after bolting from his Prattville, Ala. home when the city's drug enforcement unit pulled up with a search warrant, police said.
The suspected meth head managed to run out the backdoor and down a 25-foot ravine where officers temporarily managed to lose him.
It was at that moment they were greeted by Henderson's pit bull-husky mix who came out of the woods where Henderson had fled.
"The dog, later identified as Bo, looked at one of the investigators and the investigator pointed at Henderson and said go get him. Bo without hesitation went down the ravine trailed by two Drug Enforcement Investigators," the police department said in a release. Prattville Police Department Henderson was found lying in tall grass behind his Prattville home Tuesday thanks to his dog who eagerly went to join him when encouraged by police.
While the two investigators weren't immediately successful, Bo apparently was.
Upon exiting the brush Bo tipped them off to some tall grass he was now hiding in, all by the swoosh of his tail. There with him they found Henderson lying flat on the ground.
"Bo was rewarded with dog biscuits from our K-9 Sergeant," the Prattville Police Department said.
Henderson was taken into custody without further incident and a search of his home recovered methamphetamine and components from a meth lab, said police.
He's been charged with failure to obey police, first- and second-degree counts of unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
