The police say the dog didn't hesitate for a second in "saving the life" of the agent.

A demonstration saw the officer lying down and playing dead.

Poncho came running over and started jumping on his chest.

Wearing a flashing blue police light, the puppy also leaned over the officer's neck to check for a pulse.
