Chihuahua Chases Away Robbers In LA

This is one of the cutest stories I’ve seen in a while. I’m loving this little Chihuahua, Paco, who chased away two robbers from his owners’ store. The Los Angeles Times reported:

The attempted robbery took place July 7 about 7:30 p.m. at Ace Smoke Shop on North Lake Avenue in Altadena. The video shows two hooded men, one armed with a rifle, running into the store and demanding money.

The store owner quickly begins placing money in a robber’s backpack. As he does, his Chihuahua erupts into ferocious barking at the two men, who beat a hasty retreat, running out of the store with the backpack but taking less money than they could’ve gotten.

At one point, one of the robbers even points his rifle at the diminutive but undaunted pooch, who chases the pair out of the store and down the street.

That’s just awesome.
