Two hooded robbers, one armed with a rifle, took off with "less money than they could've gotten," thanks to an "enraged" Chihuahua who drove them from Ace Smoke Shop, reports the Los Angeles Times.
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.
Neither the owner nor the dog was injured in the incident.
The story fails to mention the best part — when the brave little barker actually ricochets off the leg of one of the bandits before chasing them down the street.
Way to take a bite out of crime!
