“The guys house caught fire and the troopers GPS unit jammed while he was driving out there. The drive to their house was MUCH farther then the .gif depicts.
I can’t find the original video in where I saw it, but there it was stated the dogs owner was standing outside of the house as it was burning and said to the dog: “Buddy, we need to get help.” It was only at this point that the dog ran off until it found the trooper. It’s somewhere around this point that the gif begins and the dog starts running back home (Also note that there’s a good chunk of video missing in the image). The trooper stated that the dog on numerous occasions looked over it’s shoulder and slowed down if the distance between them was too far, as if to make sure that he was following. Also, when the fire had been extinguished, the trooper told the firefighters about what the dog had done. They then told him that the dog had done the exact same thing with them, when it saw their truck.
You can try using fear and instincts as a rationalization for the dogs actions, but fact of the matter is that the dogs owner was in deep shit and told his dog to get help, to which the dog responded by bringing back a police cruiser and a firetruck.”
