As soon as you bring a dog home, your house becomes their territory, and dogs don’t take kindly to strangers trespassing on their territory. No matter if they’re big or small, a dog will fiercely guard your house against intruders.
This video shows a great example of how loyal dogs are and how hard they work to protect their homes. The video begins by showing security camera footage of a burglar creeping through a backyard. He looks around, making sure nobody sees him.
Once he thinks the coast is clear, he heads towards the house. For a second, nothing happens. But then, the burglar bolts out of the house and over the fence, clearly terrified. And the thing that scared him half to death? A tiny Yorkie named Scamp.
After the burglar runs away, Scamp stands next to the fence and barks until he’s sure that the burglar is gone. Then he heads back into his house, probably to continue the nap that the burglar rudely interrupted.
The burglar was later caught, thanks in part to Scamp’s hard work. We’re sure Scamp’s owner gave him lots of treats and belly rubs to thank him for being such a great guard dog. Check out the dramatic standoff between a burglar and a determined Yorkie in the video below!
