Chihuahua scares off would-be robbers

ALTADENA, CA (KABC/CNN) - Some say it's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog.

A tiny Chihuahua named Paco certainly seems to believe that. He scared off two armed men during an attempted robbery this week in Altadena, CA.

While the men tried to rob a store, Paco kept barking and biting at the robbers and eventually they ran away.

"He was a rescue dog, so I suggest everybody rescue a dog from the pound. You never know when you're going to need him," said Erik Knight, Paco's owner.

Neighbors say they didn't know little Paco had it in him because he's normally a laid back pooch.

The thieves made off with about $200, but no one was hurt.
