Imagine being attacked savagely by three gang members with a box cutter. On May 25, 2015, Todd Frazier, a sheriff’s deputy, was murdered in this manner. He was injured and beaten to a pulp, but he still had the strength to push a button that would save his life. He freed his backup K-9 dog, which was waiting in his vehicle, as soon as the button was pressed. The gang members took off for their lives when the canine unleashed its fury. He could not have been closer to death’s door, which makes this incident a close call.

On May 25, 2015, a Deputy sheriff with the Orange County Sheriff’s Department shot and killed Todd Frazier after he pulled over a vehicle. The officer was Deputy Todd Frazier. He wasn’t certain if he would ever see the light of day again at the time. The gang members were eager to murder him and leave his body for the wolves.

However, when Frazier was able to remove his hand from the door handle, he was able to push the button that unlatched his police car’s K-9 unit. The dog bounded over and engaged the three assailants in a furious maul right near the edge of the forest. They were terrified, and they had no chance against the police dog.

The dog attacked them, and they fled as fast as they could.

Frazier suffered serious injuries, but he eventually recovered and is now back on the job. He credits his K-09 partner with saving his life that day. It’s a true story of survival against all odds thanks to Frazier’s fast thinking and the bravery of his K-09 partner, who arrested three criminals.

His life had been threatened, but Deputy Frazier of Hancock County, Mississippi, survived the danger to his existence. If it weren’t for Lucas, Deputy Frazier might not have made it out alive. When his human companion needed him most, however, the K-9 unit arrived in time.

As he approached, Deputy Frazier saw a man sitting in his vehicle at a rest stop who appeared to be unconscious. Someone had phoned in the situation concerned that the person might not be okay.

Two other males ambushed Deputy Frazier as he approached the vehicle to do a welfare check. And in no time, the officer was outnumbered three to one. And he had zero chance of winning that fight against the gang.

“I had three people on me, and I’m not a very big man, and they basically whipped my butt,” Frazier said after his dog saved his life.

The attackers threatened to kill Frazier. As a result, he fought with all of his might to free his hand as they dragged him into the woods in a desperate situation.

“I had a button on my belt that I wear, and when I hit the button Lucas jumped out of the car and attacked all three of them, and they ran away.”

Deputy Frazier would not have survived the gang assault had it not been for the K-9 unit.

Frazier acknowledged, “That’s why he’s my hero.”

This story should persuade you about the usefulness of police dogs. They are trained to defend and serve, and they will go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that crime is punished. We are so relieved that Deputy Frazier and his K-9 partner Lucas are both safe and well today.
