MIDDLETOWN, Ohio (WDTN) — A Middletown Police K9 is being called a hero dog after protecting his handler.
The K9 named Chase was tracking a burglary suspect on Tuesday along with his handler, Officer Morgan.
That’s when a rottweiler and bulldog tried to attack the officer. Chase fought off both dogs, before continuing to track the suspect.
Chase suffered a minor injury, but was cleared by a veterinarian on Wednesday morning.
A post on the Middletown Police Facebook page said, “Officer Morgan is very proud and grateful Chase protected him.”
“We are pretty proud of him too!”
