When Chihuahua's attack! Little dog chases off robbers

(CBS/AP) - Okay, when you think of the type of dog able to keep a group of robbers at bay, chances are you don't think of the mighty Chihuahua.

A new video making the rounds on YouTube is challenging that idea.

It shows the little pointy-eared dog angrily chasing off robbers at an Altadena, Calif. smoke shop.

As the store owner gives money to the bandits, the owner's dog starts barking and jumping at the men, chasing them out of the store and down the street.

According to The Associated Press, neither the store owner, nor the dog was injured.
