“Here was a deranged suspect, armed with a handgun, running through a residential neighborhood,” said Allen. “So I gave Rambo the bite command and he ran down the street and bit the suspect in the right arm, which was the arm in which he had the gun in. At that time, I didn’t have time to think about what truly happened, and I do feel that he saved my life that day.”
With Rambo’s efforts the 31 year-old suspect was taken into custody with only minor injuries.
In the past two years Rambo’s record has been impressive. He has taken only seven suspects by biting them. He has apprehended another 46 suspects without having to bite them.
The relationship between Rambo and Allen is very close, as Allen spends more time with Rambo than with his family. Allen makes sure Rambo gets a proper reward when he does a good job.
“When he performs well and does a good job, he gets a 7-ounce filet mignon,” said Allen.
