Your Working Dog Radio Hosts, Eric @vanessk9 & Ted @ted_summers, sit down with Corporal Daniel Allen.
This guest’s story is chilling… If you remember the post we did for the American Aluminum kennel in the back of a police vehicle that was shot with 17 rounds from an AK-47, this is the officer and K9 involved. Do us a favor, and hug your loved ones a little tighter today after listening to this close call.
Corporal Daniel Allen always wanted to become a police officer; he graduated high school in 2008, and did one year of college before starting his law enforcement career in 2018. He has been serving for 5 years, and has an abundance of training, along with a few accolades, including 2 Life Saver Awards, SWAT Operator, and K9 Handler.
The incident we mentioned occurred May 5th, 2023. Corporal Allen was shot in the hip by a suspect with a AK-47 as he was exiting his patrol vehicle, and his partner, K9 Halligan was shot several times through the vehicle. Corporal Allen had to undergo surgery to repair his shattered hip on the left side, and K9 Halligan had to have surgery to remove shrapnel and repair organs. Doctors had to place multiple screws and wires in Corporal Allen’s hip so that he would be able to walk again, which he counts as a blessing because it was only one centimeter away from paralyzing him on the left side. Both handler and K9 are recovering well, but still have a long road ahead of them. He has a constant reminder of the incident, the bullet is still lodged in his upper thigh. He plans to return to the Oxford Police Department once he is fully healed. Through it all, Corporal Allen has his head up, and will not be defeated. Corporal Allen knows the dangers of being a police officer and is still willing to get in the fight for the community. Due to the incident, there are now talks of a Purple Heart being awarded to Corporal Allen for the courageous act of putting his life on the line for the citizens of Oxford, and standing on the oath he swore to once he became an officer.
