Do not underestimate the Chihuahuas. They maybe small in size but they can be fierce, lethal, brave and furious.
In Los Angeles, a little Chihuahua managed to fend off and scare 2 well-bulit robbers armed with what looked like a shotgun.
The incessant barkings by the Chihuahua panicked the robbers and sent them running helter skelter with the Chihuahua hot on their heels.
Los Angeles County sheriff’s officials released a footage of the robbery attempt foiled by the enraged and barking Chihuahua named Paco.
By releasing the footage, police hopes the public can help identify the criminals.
The attempted robbery took place on July 7th, 2011 about 7:30 p.m. at Ace Smoke Shop on North Lake Avenue in Altadena, Los Angeles.
Neither the owner nor the hero dog was injured in the incident, Los Angeles Times reported.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact 911 or the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department detectives or at the website lacrimestoppers.org.
Well done Chihuahua.
The Chihuahua is the smallest breed of dog and is said to originate from Mexico.
As such, the state of Chihuahua in Mexico is named after this breed.
Some Chihuahuas are ill tempered and are easily provoked to attack.
The breed tends to be fiercely loyal to their owner and in some cases may become over protective of the person, especially around other people or animals.
That's the story of the Chihuahua for today.
