We all like to think that our dogs would protect us from an intruder, but before you put too much faith in Fido, watch this special report from WHNT. The Alabama TV station hired a ‘burglar’ to break into homes in order to assess the protective nature of a number of dogs.

Today’s test subjects:

Layla: 30 Pound Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog
Oliver: 28 Pound Papillon Mix
Charlie: 120 Pound Rottweiler
Indy: 5 Pound Yorkie
Asher: 11 Pound Chihuahua-Rat Terrier Mix
Major: 85 Pound German Shepherd

Who cowered, who ran, who played, and who protected? Watch and learn – you may be surprised by the results.

  1. Doubt it. My dog thought there was good in everyone. She’d probably have thought that an intruder was a welcome visitor. Bless her x

  2. not my big dog..he’s a walmart greeter kinda guy 🙂 nobody sneaks past my little wiggles though 🙂

  3. If anyone had the nerve to open the door after listening to his bark and growl, he would probably rush past them to chase the squirrels. you never know, though…

  4. I’m afraid that my dog would accept a treat & then show them where the jewelry & cash are hidden … she’s 70 lbs of rough, tough creampuff!
