Police Dog Stabbed In Line Of Duty, Has Simon Cowell Fighting Back Tears On BGT
Finn, a 9-year-old German Shepherd ex-police dog, recently appeared on Britain’s Got Talent with his handler, Dave Wardell. They thrilled the audience and the judges with some serious mind-reading skills, but it was their incredible backstory that made everyone cry their eyes out!

Just months back, Dave was tackling an armed suspect, when the suspect suddenly attacked Dave with a 10-inch blade. The brave Finn instinctively shielded Dave and ended up getting stabbed in his chest and head.
Dave handcuffed the suspect and rushed the dying Finn to the ER. One of Finn’s lungs was punctured, but his heart was intact. The doctors took him in for emergency surgery and eventually managed to save his life!
The next few weeks, Finn was hooked up to all sorts of breathing aids and machines. After a long and arduous recovery period, Finn was back on the streets, fighting crime and saving the day. Eventually, he retired and Dave took him home to live comfortably as his family dog!
To thank his best buddy, Dave has been fighting for “Finn’s law”, which pushes for harsher punishments for hurting service dogs. No wonder teary-eyed Simon made a special gesture to this pair after the act. Now that Finn is in retirement, we’re sure he’ll learn many more mind-blowing tricks to keep us all amazed!

We’ve all had a bad day now and then, but when it comes to these dogs, they’ve got “ruff” days covered. Whether they woke up on the wrong side of the bed, are feeling a grumpy, or just didn’t realize it was vet visit time, these dogs give new meaning to having a bad day.
Check out these 10 dogs who are having a worse day than you:
1) This Dog Who Tried To Find The Perfect Spot
This adorable Frenchie just wanted to get comfortable. Just a few little digging motions and he would be all settled in for a nap. But it wasn’t in the cards– and OOPS, off he goes.
2) This Dog Who Got Caught With His Foot In His Mouth
Have you ever said something you instantly regret? It’s like you can’t get your foot in your mouth fast enough. We think this pooch opened his mouth at the wrong time and BAM! Instead of being reprimanded for saying something off-color, he just punished himself 😂
6) This Dog Who Isn’t Supposed To Be On The Furniture
When this dog’s owner isn’t home, this pooch figures he can do whatever he wants, and that includes being a total spaz all over the furniture. Little does he know his owner has hidden video cameras and he’s going to get a speaking to when his dad gets home. It was fun while it lasted though.
If it looks like a chew toy, it must be a chew toy, right? This Beagle has it all wrong. His owner will either be surprised by his new find or in total hysterics. Either way, this beachgoer is short of a top– but thankfully, she’s a good sport about it.
