'Who's a good boy?': Fire department dog wins hearts after opening building door for fireman
The video was shared online by Georgetown Texas Fire Department that shows Koda, who is a working dog, open the door for his fireman colleague
GEORGETOWN, TEXAS: A dog has won people’s hearts after successfully opening the front door of a building so that his human colleague, who got locked outside, could come in. Koda, who works for the Georgetown, Texas fire department, was seen in the Twitter video waiting for a staff member to come inside. However, soon it became evident that the unnamed person had forgotten his keys and was struggling to open the glass door.
The footage showed the golden retriever patiently waiting before the fireman gave him instructions through hand gestures to open the door and voila! Koda succeeded without any struggle. The clip was posted by the fire department itself.

Must be tiring carrying all those responsibilities 😂.”

What an awesome dog! :)— Brian Batch (@RudySnow76) November 12, 2022
A person shared, “When your dog is smarter than you, and it makes you proud. Good job.” Another person noted: “What an awesome dog! :)” On Facebook also, a number of people appreciated Koda with one saying, “I showed my daughter this video today and we loved it. She's 6 and a huge dog lover.” Another user jokingly wrote, “Good job Koda! Smart cookie, giving Jonathan a run for his money 🤣😜.”

This comes after earlier this year, a hero dog named Tinsley saved her owner’s life by informing police about him after an accident. New Hampshire State Police's lieutenant Daniel Baldassarre reportedly said, "Almost alerting them to what was off the roadway, which they discovered a truck which had been overturned with two gentlemen that were ejected from the vehicle. They could tell the dog was trying to show them something because she kept trying to get away from them but didn’t run away totally. It was kind of, ‘Follow me. Follow me.’”
Later, Tinsley’s human Cam Laundry also praised her by saying: “She’s my little guardian angel you know. It’s a miracle that she had that kind of intelligence to do what she did. Of course, she never leaves my side, so we’re always together in that truck that got wrecked. She's always my co-pilot, she’s always with me.”
