When armed robbers stormed¬† Erik Knight’s Altadena, CA store, they were counting on getting away with a big haul. What they didn’t count on was Paco.

The moment the masked gunmen arrived demanding money, the fearless Chihuahua sprung into action without hesitation, jumping on the robbers and snarling, eventually pursuing them as they fled the scene.

“I’m going to put a cape on him I think,” said owner Erik Knight.

Paco is now a neighborhood celebrity, and those who know him say the usually mild mannered pooch was just trying to save the man who saved him five years ago. “He was rescued, so I suggest everybody rescue a dog from the pound,” said Knight. “You never know when you’re going to need him.”
