WATCH: ‘Yapping Small Dog’ Helps To Foil An Armed Robbery

If you own a dog that is small enough to fit into a handbag, then you probably already know that tiny dogs often come with prominent personalities.

And a video that has been shared on Twitter by the New York Police Department shows just how brave these small dogs can be.

In the video, two masked robbers, one holding a gun, try to hold up a pharmacy in Brooklyn, New York.

As one of the masked raiders jumps over the counter, a small white dog appears to ‘confront’ the robber and starts to bark at him.

The dog disappears out of the shot and which point one of the robbers falls over and lands almost precisely where the small dog had been only moments earlier.

The thief then gets to his feet and runs out of the pharmacy empty-handed.

Let us know what you think!
