Join Lauren and the Police Dog Handler, Dave Wardell in this very emotional and heart-wrenching episode of the Sexier than a Squirrel podcast as we share the tale of the horrific turn of events in 2016 where Dave's best mate, the heroic German Shepard Finn (a General Purpose Police Dog), puts his own life on the line to take down a criminal AND save his dad's life in the process!
Throughout this terrifying and unbelievable journey we learn how Finn overcomes his traumatic injuries to live a life full of heroic achievements, pure awesomeness and so many truly, truly amazing wins!
Have your tissues ready, this is a story of a once in a lifetime Police Dog and his Handler and how pure canine instinct, an unbreakable dog-handler bond and the most unlucky, traumatic event can rally the immense support of a national community to bring about a law to make it harder for those who harm service animals to claim they were acting in self-defence.
Finn's Law now gives power to prosecute more severely those who injure service animals such as police horses, and police dogs just like Finn! This emotional story is full of ups and downs, twists and turns and ultimately, a happy ending - it's one you certainly won't want to miss!Support the show
