Joey was working the overnight shift at the 911 dispatch center when she received a call from the local Panera Bread. A seemingly stray dog was trying to beg her way into the restaurant, and the employees were starting to panic.
Apparently, this dog was massive, and the staff was nervous to get close.
Joey wanted to send an officer, but no one was available to respond. As the minutes passed, Joey couldn’t shake the feeling of concern over the dog… so she asked her boss if she could handle the situation herself.
“He was like ‘What?’ It’s like, ‘Can I go get her?’” Joey recounted to KDVR.
Joey hopped in her car, found the dog, and confirmed she was indeed gigantic — a big Great Dane, to be exact. But she was also more than happy to jump into the dispatcher’s vehicle.
Joey took the dog back to the dispatch center, where her fellow operators showered the grateful pup with love.
After animal services couldn’t detect a microchip, Joey used social media to see if anyone was missing a Great Dane. That’s when another dispatcher, who was at home and noticed the Facebook post, came up with a brilliant idea.
