When it comes to protecting their pack, dogs don’t usually stop and think about whether they should act or not, especially when the danger is imminent. These reliable creatures disregard their own safety and confront the threat right away.
This is why dogs are well known for their loyalty. And a shop owner from Manosque, France, knows this too well. He has a first-hand experience that he would never forget.
Thankfully, a surveillance camera captured that fateful moment, and we could see his dog’s heroic act.
The footage started by showing the shop owner preparing to close his store. The video time stamp showed that it was about seven in the evening. He was cleaning his store then he went out carrying the trash.
A few seconds later, the owner was walking back when a man wearing an all-black outfit and a white mask started pointing a gun at him.
The shop owner held up the trashcan he was carrying, using it as a shield, then started running back to his store. The armed robber quickly followed. Trying to create a distance between them, the would-be victim started throwing the garbage bin and toppled stools as he ran behind his store’s counter.
Still brandishing a gun, the suspect followed. Then, it was his turn to actually be surprised.
Out from the shadows of the dark counter, a dog jumped at him. The pooch, named Hobby, sensed his owner’s distress then saw the threat before them. He immediately leaped into action.
The robber started retreating and ran out of the shop. The dog chased him while his owner followed as well. Outside the store, the dog started going for the suspect’s legs, and they were able to wrestle the gun out of his hand. The robber was able to escape, though.
Thankfully, none of them were hurt, and no shots were fired.
