Dogs are known to be very good guardians. They guard our homes, family members, and even our belongings.
For one adorable Rottweiler, guarding the family’s bread has become part of her duties. And bear in mind, she wasn’t asked to do so. She merely took it to herself to guard the family’s bread – no matter what kind it is.
The 6-year-old Rottweiler, named Jakey, began her bread-guarding duties when she was just two years old.
After having observed how the family loved their bread, the loyal canine started to perform her guarding duties.
Every time the family would leave the house, Jakey would find their bread, and then hide it to keep it safe.
According to her owner, Katrina Frank, Jakey deemed it vital to protect any bread they have in the house.
When the family comes back home, all they have to do is say the magic words, “Jake, where’s the bread?” and she would reveal where she’s hidden it.
Ever since she started hiding their bread, her ritual has continued to this day.
And what is even astonishing is that Jakey has never, even once, taken a bite out of the bread that she has hidden. That’s incredible self-control!
The family has a bread box, so she would hop up and take the bread out of there. And when the bread is placed in the pantry, Jakey would nudge the door open to get it out.
Katrina even once tried putting the bread inside the refrigerator, and she still managed to open the fridge door and take the bread.
If there isn’t any bread around, Jakey will move on to any baked goods. One time, according to Katrina, Jakey couldn’t find any bread, so she took a Tupperware with cookies instead.
She hid all 17 pieces individually without even breaking any, and when Katrina came back home, Jakey led her to all 17 pieces.
Not even the other family pets can get close to the snacks that Jakey is hiding while she is on guard duty.
The family cat, Nacho, once became curious about a loaf of garlic bread, and Jakey shooed her off.
Katrina said that Jakey’s protective behavior started because she thinks that it is the most important thing to them as they use it most often.
And that is why they love Jakey so much!

Jakey the Bread Protector strikes again, without fail. Tonight she had to bring the bread all the way to the top of the stairs. Not sure what crazy business went on while we were gone, but clearly someone on the main level of the house must have been posing a threat to our carbs. 😅
