Dog Honored For Saving Man From Jumping Off Cliff

JasperA police officer in the UK and his dog, Jasper, saved a man’s life and have been honored for their heroism.

Jasper, a German Shepherd, jumped into action and rescued a man seconds away from jumping off a cliff earlier this year.

Mark Dent, the police officer, saw the missing man’s car and Jasper picked up the man’s scent. When the pair found the man, Dent started to persuade the man to come down from the cliff, but the man was not coaxed into coming down. Dent was at the bottom of the bank and couldn’t reach the man to take him down.

The man became extremely agitated and was just about to jump when Dent sent Jasper to stop him from jumping. Jasper hopped onto the man’s back and took him down to the ground which allowed Dent to come over and detain the man.

An inspector said, “This action undoubtedly saved the man’s life and was an exceptional piece of work by both PC Dent and Jasper.”

Dent and Jasper won the Overhills Trophy for saving the man. This is the third time that they have won this award in five years.

    This is a steller example of the German Shepherd and what they do. The intelligence and intregrity is common and should be honored.
