It’s A Dog-Eat-Muffin World: Cop Uses Wife’s Baked Goods To Lure Pup Out Of Danger.

Police use a pumpkin muffin to save a dog stuck in a canal.

One dog owes his life to the Glendale Police Department in Arizona, an officer’s wife, and a delicious pumpkin muffin. Officers responded to a call that there was a German shepherd trapped in a canal. Sure enough, when they arrived at the scene, the frantic dog was swimming around, unable to get out. Despite his desperate situation, the dog didn’t seem to want to come near the police.

Thankfully, Officer Downey had a treat on hand to entice the pooch: a pumpkin muffin baked by his wife. The German shepherd couldn’t resist the bait, making it easy for the cops to get close enough for a rescue. According to a Facebook post from the Glendale Police Department, the dog is now safe and back at home with his owners.

Watch the video below to see the clever rescue mission in action!
