A Utah family’s black lab may not have a mighty bark or even a vicious bite, but the pooch proved over the weekend he had what it took to thwart a porch pirate trying to steal something from his owner’s house.
Whitney Cahoon said that package thieves have become a common occurrence in her neighborhood in Ogden, Utah, located north of Salt Lake City, but she never thought she would end up being a victim since she lives on a busy street. One man, however, tried to steal a package — containing a $4 dimmer switch from Ikea.
In a doorbell camera video, the man can be seen running up to her porch and grabbing the package. That’s when Cahoon called on her 9-year-old black lab, Zero.
“I just kind of yelled, ‘Get ‘em Zero! Get ‘em!” Cahoon told FOX13.
