Dogs make great defenders of our homes when we’re away. A surveillance camera also comes in handy. One installed in the backyard of a home captures a man snooping around a backyard, perhaps looking to see if anyone’s home before breaking in. For a brief moment he walks out of frame. Then he is seen running for his life from the most terrifyingly scary guard dog any would-be criminal has ever seen: a Yorkshire Terrier.

The little Yorkie chases the man across the backyard. The burglar quickly jumps the fence, making his escape. The Yorkie does a full 360 in what appears to be both a quick sweep of the area to eliminate any further threats and a celebratory dance for his brave deed. reports that the man has since been arrested and told police he suffers from cynophobia – abnormal fear of dogs.

If only he had paid attention to the "Beware of Dog” sign.
