Chihuahua versus robbers (Chihuahua wins)
This July 7 surveillance video just released by L.A. County sheriff shows a 10-pound Chihuahua named Paco chasing off a pair of robbers at Ace Smoke Shop in Altadena, Calif.
Two masked men entered the store with an empty backpack and demanded money, pointing the gun at the cashier.
From out of nowhere comes Paco, barking furiously and biting at their legs. For a second, it appears the two robbers were so frightened they were going to leave without the money. But one, after initially retreating, grabs it before they flee, Paco chasing at their heels.
No one was injured — not even Paco — during the incident.
Paco, according to Time.com, was a rescue dog and has been with shop owner Eric Knight for five years.
Knight wasn’t at the shop during the robbery, but was proud of how bravely his dog behaved.
“I’m going to put a cape on him, I think,” he said.
