Paco the Crime-Fighting Chihuahua Chases Off Robbers [VIDEO]

Paco the Chihuahua

When Eric Knight adopted his Chihuahua, Paco, from a shelter five years ago, he had no idea the pint-sized canine led a double-life as a superhero.

Two armed robbers who recently tried to shake down Knight’s cigar store in Altadena, California found out the hard way. They got far enough in the heist that the store owner was stuffing cash into a backpack — and that’s when Paco emerged, full of aggression and ear-piercing barks.

So rattled were the thieves by all the commotion that they grabbed the backpack and fled, the little dog in hot pursuit. Paco proudly returned a short time later, tail wagging. No one was hurt and the men only got away with about $200.

In an interview with local news station ABC 7, neighbor Cecil Griffin said, “I was shocked, because normally he’s just really laid back. He’s just sitting back, taking it easy. So I finally told his owner he finally earned his keep. We’ve been feeding him all this time. Now look, he’s not going to let anyone mess up his home.”

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