Police dog Fi reunited with injured handler

Police dog Five-O – Fi for short – spent 37 hours trapped in her van cage as bullets whistled around her.


Fi was reunited with dog handler Senior Constable Grant Diver and family in hospital on Saturday morning (9 May).

The usually vocal Fi had stayed quiet in the van, prompting fears for her safety. Heat from thermal imaging provided some hope and she was rescued late on Friday – a little confused and dehydrated but otherwise ok.
