This story is pointless because the dog was crying canis lupus.

the dog WHAT??????????

Many of these mis-dials depend upon the caller actually mis-dialing the call. That is, their finger presses an adjacent Touch Tone key--the-called "fat finger." [download this study on human factors research into the Touch Tone keypad layout. Acrobat, pdf format]. Therefore, there is little that PSAPs can do to reduce or limit the errors, and the resulting accidental 911 calls.
